Introduction

A copper alloy is an alloy with copper as its primary metal, which is mixed with different alloying elements to provide a range of materials designed to maximize characteristics such as ductility, strength, machinability, formability, or electrical conductivity.

UNS C19210 copper alloy possesses good corrosion resistance in natural atmosphere, industrial atmosphere as well as sea atmosphere. This alloy has better abrasive corrosion resistance than UNS C19210 when exposed to different waters and neutral saline solutions. Likewise it is resistant to stress corrosion cracking.

The following datasheet discusses the chemical composition and properties of copper UNS C19210.
