Copper is one of the metals with the highest thermal and electrical conductivity. Therefore, it is very often used in the manufacture of coils, inductors and heat exchangers. We offer copper in two variants as pure 99.6% copper and then a CuNi2SiCr alloy, which retains excellent conductivity but also has better strength and surface hardness.
