If you cannot find the information you need or would like to request additional technical product details, please feel free to Contact Us for more information. Storage of Copper-based Strip Products Controlling the storage environment for copper strip alloys helps maintain good surface quality for an extended period of time. Formability of Strip Products The formability of copper strip is dependent upon a number of variables including alloy, temper, bending direction, strip thickness, width, and method of forming. Soldering Copper Alloy Strip Directions for soldering copper beryllium and copper nickel tin alloys for electronic applications, including surface preparation and procedures, are detailed in this technical brief. Surface Coating High Performance Copper Alloy Strip The choice of a correct coating can mean the difference between a good electrical contact and a failed connection.
