TUNGSTEN COPPER ALLOYS
Tungsten Copper Alloys are really important to combine the high melting point and mechanical resistance of tungsten with the electrical conductivity of copper. Thanks to a specific process, it is possible to combine the high melting point and mechanical resistance of the first with the electrical conductivity of the second one. In these combinations it’s possible to infiltrate copper with the percentage of weight between the 10% until the 40%. Generally they are used as electrical contacts with fierce voltage, electrodes for eletrical discharge machining, good thermal conductivity and low thermal expansion. Finally these properties are essential to allow to use this kind of alloy in many different applications.
