Introduction

Copper and alloys of copper are known for their excellent thermal and electrical conductivity and good corrosion resistance. UNS numbers C10100 to C13000 denote pure copper. The applications of the copper alloys are dependent on the type and quantity of the impurities that it is alloyed with.

Copper alloys that are free from oxygen content are best suited for applications that require high ductility and conductivity. This alloy is referred to as fire refined high conductivity (FRHC) copper alloy. It is used in the form of a brazing filler metal. It is used in applications such as roofing, flashing, fasteners and other industrial applications.

This datasheet will elaborate on the chemical composition and properties of copper UNS C11020 alloy.
