C10100 Copper Forging

C10100 copper alloy can be either forging in hot or cold temperature status. The hot forgeability rating of this alloy is 65. (Forging brass = 100). The recommended hot forging temperature for this alloy is between 1400 and 1600 F. Cold Forging of C10100 Copper is operated under room temperature, which will not require heating process. Forging of C10100 copper can achieve great advantages including excellent conductivity, excellent strength and ecellent ductility.
