Copper strips are rolled copper which is formed into a wide, flat ribbon through machining. Copper has a number of uses in the electrical industry, thanks to its high conductivity, and excellent malleability and ductility. It is also widely used in construction projects such as roofs, domes or spires. Some of C19210’s features include:

  • Iron content of 0.05% to 0.15% and phosphor content of 0.025% to 0.04%, with the remaining alloy content being copper.

  • High electrical and thermal conductivity with an electrical resistance of 55% IACS. Pure copper has a resistance of 0.15328 Ω (also known as 100% IACS). Copper is the standard against which all other metals are compared.

  • Good resistance to corrosion from the natural atmosphere, as well as the atmosphere in an industrial or maritime setting. A natural film, or patina, forms over copper which protects it from further corrosion.

  • Excellent ability to be welded and soldered, although spot welding, gas-shielded arc and seam resistance welding should be avoided.

  • Excellent antibacterial surface. Copper has been used to protect the hulls of wooden ships against barnacle growth, and is also used in tubes and fitting to allow unobstructed water flow. Copper doorknobs in hospitals have been shown to be bacteriostatic, preventing the spread of potentially harmful organisms.

  • Melting point of 1,980°F (1,082°C).

  • Tensile strength of 345 MPa (50,000 ksi).
