Focus on Copper Alloy 

CuNi2Si – UNS.C64700  Nickel Silicon Copper, which is an age-hardening alloy, higher alloyed in comparison with CuNi1.5Si, for current-carrying formed parts. It has an a-structure with very fine precipitations and recommends itself both for lead frames which require a high rigidity of the pins and for connector with high demands on the electrical conductivity, strength and relaxation behavior. In addition, the CuNi2Si can also be used for current-carrying formed parts and contact springs due to its good fatigue strength, forming and spring properties.


Chemical Composition:

Ni: 1.60-2.20%
Si: 0.40-0.80%
Fe: 0.10% Max.
Zn: 0.50% Max.
Cu: Balance
Note: Copper plus additions equal 99.50% minimum.
