Beryllium Copper Bar and Strip

Farmer’s Copper Ltd. maintains an inventory of C17200 Beryllium Copper rod and strip.

C172 primary characteristics are the excellent response to precipitation-hardening treatments, excellent thermal conductivity and resistance to stress relaxation. The high strength copper alloy 172 can be purchased in the solution annealed or cold worked tempers and can be easily formed or machined. A low temperature heat treatment (600 degrees for 2-3 hours) produces maximum strength and hardness. C17200, commonly known as Alloy 25, is available in rod, bar, tube, and strip.
