What are the main properties and uses of copper tungsten?
Copper tungsten demonstrates the same properties as its two components. It has the excellent electrical conductivity and arc resistance of copper. But it also exhibits the high thermal conductivity, erosion resistance and low thermal expansion of tungsten. It is an incredibly strong and tough refractory metal and it lends itself very well to the machining and fabrication process.
As a result of these properties, copper tungsten has a range of different applications. For example, it is commonly used within the electronics industry to manufacture electrodes, electrical contacts and heat sinks. It is also frequently used to manufacture aviation and aerospace parts and armament.
