C16200 Cadmium Copper (CDA 162)

SAE J461

C16200 Cadmium Copper alloy offers a unique combination of high tensile strength and high electrical conductivity for an industry where these properties are generally considered incompatible. The nominal composition of 99.0% copper and 1.0% cadmium can lead to these unique properties.

Typical Application for C16200 Cadmium Copper alloys:

Electrical Industry: Resistance Welding Electrodes, Circuit Breaker Switches, Stud Bases for Power Transmitters, Electrical Conductor Material

Consumer: Rod Extensions, Pencil-type, Light Soldering Guns, Tips

Industrial: Connectors, Solderless Wrapped, Welding Wheels, Trolley Wires
