Titanium Copper Alloys

Titanium copper from JX Nippon Mining & Metals is a copper alloy having titanium as the primary additive element. Benefits include high strength together with excellent bend formability and stress relaxation resistance. Its properties are much better compared to those of beryllium copper alloy, which has long been a representative standard for high-functionality copper alloys.

Connectors and camera modules are mainly used in electronic devices like personal computers and smartphones, benefitting from the high strength and workability. As a result of its excellent stress relaxation resistance, its use in automotive connectors has increased over the past few years.

As applications grow and the properties demanded by the customers turn out to be highly advanced, the company intends to continue the technology development towards enhancing properties and extending the alloy lineup, so that such requirements can be addressed in a timely fashion.

JX offers NKT322, its own product with higher strength, and C1990HP.

Titanium copper alloys are beryllium-free ultra-high-strength copper alloys. They possess more strength than phosphor bronze, thus expressing higher contact force when used as small contact terminals.
