Copper CW118C

Tellurium copper CW118C

CW118C tellurium copper (ISO: CuTep) is a copper alloy that is excellent for machining. Thanks to the tellurides present in the alloy, the machining is similar to the machining of lead brass. When machining by turning, a short, brittle pattern can be obtained. Copper alloys with tellurium provide very good electrical and thermal conductivity. Unlike, for example, lead brasses, no dezincification occurs in copper tellurium alloys. Tellurium copper is used in the production of elements such as connectors, nozzles for welding apparatus and parts with good sliding properties and high thermal conductivity. The most common form of tellurium copper are copper bars square, round or hexagonal. The chemical composition of tellurium copper includes such elements as: aluminum – ≤0.02%, phosphorus – 0.003-0.012%, tellurium 0.4-0.7% and others – ≤0.1%.
