High Strength and Good Formability Copper Alloy CAC™ 75

High strength and Good electrical conductivity
Excellent stress relaxation resistance and Good bend formability.

Good Points

  1. Has higher strength than 750MPa, and can use for small terminals suitably.
  2. Has high yield strength, equivalent to low bdellium copper alloys.
  3. Has about 3 times electrical conductivity of phosphorous bronze.
  4. Has excellent bend formability, which contributes to flexibility in designing due to smaller anisotropy.
  5. Has excellent stress relaxation resistance and is suitable for the automotive applications.
