Copper based master alloys are produced for the copper and brass industry. The range includes alloys such as Copper-Iron, Copper-Manganese, Copper-Boron and Copper-Zirconium. These alloys have one thing in common: they dissolve better than the corresponding pure metal or metals.
The KBM Affilips Copper-Chromium 10% master alloy is used for producing chromium-containing copper alloys that exhibit a combination of high tensile and yield strength, hardness, thermal and electrical conductivity and cold and hot workability.

The application of copper-based master alloys is precipitation hardening of alloyed copper. Typical applications include resistance welding electrodes, seam welding wheels and electrical and thermal conductors requiring more strength than provided by unalloyed copper.
