In the world of high-performance alloys, CuBe (Copper Beryllium) Alloy C17200 is the “king” of all copper alloys. C17200 boasts the highest hardness (up to 44RC), the highest UT strength (Up to 220KPSI) as well as having the best yield to elongation ratios, corrosion resistance while holding good conductivity.
This alloy’s ability to be solution annealed and re-aged without losing but a few percent of the overall strength has given many applications the flexibility to allow for weld repair and post-production heat treat benefits.
Applications include:
 Aircraft landing gear bushings
 Down hole tooling for oilfield applications
 Injection mold heat sinks
 Performance racing seats and guides
 High pressure seals
