Zirconium adding resistance capabilities to copper for an increase in hardness while handling higher temperatures

Name a metal alloy that has been used for centuries, and many people will think of aluminum, iron or copper. Yet Zirconium should also be added to the list. There are numerous products in our workplaces and our homes that uses this silvery-gray metal, such as lamp filaments, television glass, and even in some deodorants….

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…
