HIGH CONDUCTIVITY ALLOYS FOR ELECTRONIC SPRINGS & CONNECTORS

When conductivity is the most important requirement for your electronic spring or connector application, choose from a range of highly engineered alloys designed to maximize reliability and service life.

The following high-conductivity alloys are optimized for power transmission applications.

  • Brush® 60 alloy – Strip with the best formability and strength combination. Outstanding resistance to stress relaxation.
  • Alloy 174 – Strip, rod and wire alloy with high yield and fatigue strength and good resistance to stress relaxation. Works well at higher temperatures.
  • Alloy 3 – Rod and wire with a good combination of strength and resistance to stress relaxation.
  • Brush 1915® material – Cold headable rod that performs well at elevated temperatures and resists corrosion. High tensile and yield strength with good resistance to stress relaxation.
  • Brush® 1916 material – Screw machinable rod with good performance at elevated temperatures. High tensile and yield strength with good corrosion resistance.
  • Alloy 390® material – Strip with high fatigue strength and stress relaxation resistance at elevated temperatures. The highest strength in this class of materials.
  • Alloy 390E – Strip with high strength and good formability.
