T2 Copper

What Is T2 Copper?

T2, referred to as copper. A grade of pure copper in machinery, T2 copper refers to a copper-silver alloy, in which the copper + silver element content of copper is >99.9%, and there is no requirement for phosphorus.

Pure copper strip (hard, ≥0.3mm)
T2 conductivity ≥56Ms/m,
Resistance ≤0.0178×10-6 Ω.m.
Brand number: T2
Executive standard: GB/T 2059-2017
Density: 8.9 g/cm³

Product characteristics and scope of application

Product Features

It has good electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, corrosion resistance and processing properties, and can be welded and brazed. Contains less impurities that reduce electrical conductivity and thermal conductivity. A trace amount of oxygen has little effect on electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity and processing performance, but it is easy to cause “hydrogen disease”. It is not suitable for processing (annealing, annealing, Welding, etc.) and use.

Product use occasion

Used as electrical, thermal, and corrosion resistant equipment. Such as wires, cables, conductive screws, detonators for blasting, evaporators for chemical industry, storage and various pipelines.
