BRASS - COPPER ZINC ALLOY - CuZn10

General Description

ELEKTRISOLA brass wire CuZn10 consists of 90% copper and 10% zinc (C22000). This product has very good mechanical properties and corrosion behavior, comparable to that of copper. The low conductivity and the outstanding bending proof performance makes it the preferred choice for heating applications. Furthermore, bare wire is suitable for electric discharge removal of material (spark erosion). Copper zinc alloy wire is available in all insulation and self-bonding enamel types, as well as bare wire and litz wire.

Features
