Copper Chrome Zirconium 5182 A2/2 CuCr1Zr - CC102

Ideally suited for resistance welding applications.

Copper as a product is a soft metal and its use in electrical applications is usually based on its high conductivity. The strength of copper can be improved to a certain extent by cold working, but copper anneals at comparatively low temperatures.

The production of a high conductivity material which possesses considerable strength at both room and higher temperatures is of particular interest in products such as electrodes for resistance, where this is of particular importance. This is the main application for Cu.Cr.Zr. as electrodes must have a high electrical conductivity to conduct the heat away from the weld and be strong enough to withstand the mechanical pressure required for welding. Although other applications are contact tips for MIG-welding, electrical switches and certain stressed parts in turbine generators.
