Master alloys help copper shine Red metals have played an important role in many cultures, including those of the ancient Egyptians and Romans, who crafted tools, cookware, dishes, mirrors and razors out of copper. Modern uses for copper include electrical, heating/cooling applications, fluid handling and plumbing applications, as well as an increasing demand for the…
Featuring 2% Boron Copper for use as a deoxidizer and degasifier for copper and nickel-base alloys in a variety of forms
Boron Copper has gained recognition in recent years as one of the best deoxidizers and degasifiers for pure copper and copper and nickel-based alloys. It is especially useful for pure copper castings since it does not reduce conductivity. Other deoxidizers reduce conductivity drastically. The production of copper castings with well over 90% conductivity is possible when the proper melting and deoxidation procedures are used.
Common Applications: 2% Boron Copper is used to eliminate gas holes, porosity and metal oxides while providing the added benefit of increased fluidity.
Forms Available: 40-section 15-pound waffle, 4 to 5 ounce pieces, polished or unpolished shot

Can be considered either a deoxidizer or grain refiner. Generally, for pure copper its role would be deoxidizing but in brasses it’s more of a grain refiner. Forms:
- 3/4" & Down Polished Shot
- 3/4" & Down Unpolished Shot
- 40-15 Waffle
- 4-5 Oz Pcs.

Controlling composition using Master Alloys
Create materials that meet specific needs by adding master alloys to the mix It’s important to choose the right materials for a job. Using inferior or unsuitable materials can make completing a project more difficult or even derail it entirely. In the metals industry, combinations of metals, called alloys, are generated to meet the specific…
