This table shows the BS EN material designations, compositions, typical mechanical properties and relevant BS EN Standards for wrought low-alloyed copper alloys. Information on general characteristics and uses, and conductivity, is also provided.
Small additions of particular elements can produce copper alloys with a number of different properties such as free-machining and high strength. These low alloyed coppers include copper-beryllium, copper-chromium and copper-tellurium.
The table is ordered by description and EN number and includes compositions—either a range or maximum—typical mechanical properties, electrical conductivity, relevant BS EN standards and uses. The material conditions defined by the standards are also given and—where mandatory—this is indicated.
Note that not all elements listed as impurities are shown here. For the full chemical composition you should refer to the standard or the Copper and copper alloys. Compendium of compositions and products PD CEN/TS 13388.
For more detail, the appropriate standard(s) should be consulted.
