Copper Nickel Plate & Sheet

Farmer’s Copper Ltd. maintains a broad inventory of Copper Nickel C70600 and C71500. Copper nickel is known for its great resistance to seawater, as well as many other hazardous elements presented to metals. C706 and C715 are commonly used in seawater environments because of total resistance to barnacle growth, which is created by a thin tenacious protective film formation.

Typical Copper Nickel Applications

  • Pressure vessels
  • Seawater piping systems
  • Hull plate
  • Condensers
  • Heat exchangers

Farmer’s Copper Ltd. is a family owned business that has been serving the metal industry since 1920. Throughout the years, our priorities have been based on strong business relationships and meeting the wants and needs set by our customers.
