Lithium Copper Improving Alloy Quality for Better Product Manufacturing

Working with various copper, pure copper and nickel-based alloys allow for manufacturers to create end products for customers and the necessary components for their operations. However, one issue that companies experience is alloy quality during the melting and casting process. When copper and nickel-based alloys are melted, oxygen becomes introduced into the alloys from the…

Deoxidation of Copper Alloys

The deoxidation of copper alloys involves removing the oxygen using a chemical process, usually other metals. As the oxygen and other gases are removed from the metal, certain properties are either enhanced or decreased. For example, when Phosphor is added to bronze alloys, it reacts by removing the oxygen content from the metal which can…
