CuW alloys are used where the combination of high heat resistance, high electrical and thermal conductivity, and low thermal expansion are needed. Some of the applications are in electric resistance welding, as electrical contacts, and as heat sinks. As contact material the alloy is resistant to erosion by electric arc. WCu alloys are also used in electrodes for electrical discharge machining and electrochemical machining.
Copper–tungsten (tungsten–copper, CuW, or WCu) alloy is a pseudo-alloy of copper and tungsten. As copper and tungsten are not mutually soluble, the material is composed of distinct particles of one metal dispersed in a matrix of the other one. The microstructure is therefore rather a metal matrix composite instead of a true alloy.
Copper tungsten material list :
The material combines the properties of both metals, resulting in a material that is heat-resistant, ablation-resistant, highly thermally and electrically conductive, and easy to machine.
Parts are made from the CuW alloy by pressing the tungsten particles into a desired shape, sintering the compacted part, then infiltrating with molten copper. Sheets, rods and bars of the alloy are available as well.
Commonly used Copper Tungsten Alloy contains 10–50 wt.% of copper, the remaining portion being mostly tungsten. The typical properties of the alloy depend on its composition. The alloy with less wt.% of copper has higher density, higher hardness and higher resistivity. The typical density of CuW90 alloy, with 10% of copper, is 16.75 g/cm3 and 11.85 g/cm3 for CuW50 alloy. CuW90 has higher hardness and resistivity of 260 HB kgf/mm2 and 6.5 µΩ.cm than CuW50.
Q1: What is the Warranty for our products ?
A1: We own high precision grading machine to control geometry dimensions and apply ultra fine grain size substrate coated with high performance coatings to guarantee the lifetime of our products, which can satisfy every working condition.If any quality problems on our side occurred in this period , we will take on the shipping cost and replacement.
Q2: Do you provide free samples?
A2: Yes, usually we provide free samples for testing under the condition of freight paid by customer.
Q3: What is your minimum order requirement?
A3: We will indicate the MOQ for each item in the quotation sheet. We accept the sample and trial order. If the quantity of single item can't reach the MOQ, the price should be sample price.
Q4: What is the delivery time of your products?
A4: It depends on the inventory availability.If items needed are in stock, the delivery time would be within 8 work days, but if not the delivery time would be around 20 work days.
