Introduction

Historical evidence shows that copper has been in use for at least 11,000 years. It is easy to mine, extract from its ore, and form. Large copper ore deposits can be found in the United States, Zaire, Zambia, Chile, Peru and Canada.

Copper in its purest form is very soft, hence it is alloyed with other elements to gain strength. UNS C14530 is a copper-tellurium alloy.

The following datasheet discusses the chemical composition and properties of copper UNS C14530.
