T3 Copper

What Is T3 Copper?

Chinese name: T3紫铜
Standard GB/T 4423-1992
Material name: pure copper drawn rod (hard, 60~80mm)
Features: good electrical and thermal conductivity

Basic Information:

T3, copper T3, T3 material, T3 wire, T3 tube, T3 copper strip, T3 copper, T3 copper, T3 material, T1 T2 T3

Grade: T3

Characteristics, scope of application

It has good electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, corrosion resistance and processing properties, and can be welded and brazed. However, it contains more impurities that reduce electrical conductivity and thermal conductivity, and has a higher oxygen content than T2, which is more likely to cause “hydrogen disease”. It cannot be processed (annealed, welded, etc.) and used in a reducing atmosphere at high temperatures (such as >370°C).
