By combining copper with other metals, a range of copper alloys can be made to fit almost any application. Copper alloys are best suited for recycling, which is one key area of Montanwerke Brixlegg.
Copper alloys from from Montanwerke Brixlegg are metal alloys with copper as their main component. While pure copper has a lot of benefits like a great electrical and thermal conductivity, copper alloys from Montanwerke Brixlegg have high resistance against corrosion among other benefits. Each copper alloy from Montanwerke Brixlegg has its own strengths and weaknesses and with over 400 copper alloys there are plenty of copper combinations for almost every purpose. Pure copper has the best electrical and thermal conductivity of any commercial metal. Copper forms alloys more freely than most metals and with a wide range of alloying elements to produce different alloys like brasses, bronzes, nickel silver alloys, copper-nickels, gunmetals and copper beryllium alloys.
