Automotive Connectors, Aluminum Copper
Challenge of Application:
The growing use of aluminum in automotive wire harnesses and components has created new challenges for traditional connectors. Overcoming the mechanical and galvanic mismatch of joining Al with Cu devices requires a new approach to connector design.
Technical Materials' Copper Aluminum Dovetail Clad is a drop-in solution to stamping this new family of connectors. The internal joint between Cu and Al ensures excellent electrical and mechanical performance. Galvanically, the internal joint is easily protected and isolated.
