ALLOY 174 UNS C17410

Alloy 174 strip is a mill hardened copper beryllium strip alloy designed for use in the automotive, appliance and datacom / telecom markets. It provides high yield and fatigue strength with high electrical conductivity and good resistance to stress relaxation. This alloy excels in applications with high temperatures or where miniaturization is key.

Alloy 174 features twice the electrical conductivity of brass, has a high repetitive cycle life, is easily formed into complex shapes, and is available with tin coatings or precious metal inlays.
