Our products

Product category: Copper, copper alloys

Copper-Based Alloys

Featuring a wide variety of Copper-Based Alloys meeting CDA specifications, Brass and Bronzes for Jewelry and Sculpture, Copper-Based Master Alloys, and Custom Alloys


Copper was one of the first metals discovered and used by man; and it still finds wide applications. Its high thermal and electrical conductivity lets Copper find broad use in both electrical and heating/cooling usage. Copper has outstanding corrosion resistance to many chemicals and is easy to form and fabricate, leading to wide use in fluid handling and plumbing applications.

Good ductility, high conductivity and the ease of joining makes Copper the world’s #1 choice for the transmission of electrical power for telephone transmission, televisions, computers and other electrically powered products that make our lives easier.

Copper is often alloyed with additional base metals such as Zinc, Silicon, Tin, Nickel, Chromium and Beryllium among others, to produce Brasses and Bronzed that are used to make a wide variety of artistic, jewelry, marine and industrial products.

Copper has always been recycled, and today remains the most widely recycled metal in the world.

Forms/Shapes Available

Full and cut cathode, pigs, ingots, polished (Jeweler’s Grade) and unpolished squares, unpolished and polished (Jeweler’s Grade) shot, nuggets.

All types of Sn and Sn alloys for additions, alloying, casting chemical, plating, ACS reagent, and soldering uses.

Tin was one of the first metals known to man. Throughout ancient history, various cultures recognized the virtues of tin in coatings, alloys and compounds, and use of the metal increased with advanced technology. Today, Tin is an important metal in industry even though the annual tonnage used is much smaller than those of many other metals. One reason for the small tonnage is that, in most applications, only very small amounts of tin are used at a time.

Solders account for the second largest usage of Tin (after tinplate). Tin is an important constituent in solders because it wets and adheres to many common base metals at temperatures considerably below their melting points. Tin is alloyed with lead to produce solders with melting points lower than those of either tin or lead. Small amounts of various metals, notably antimony and silver, are added to tin-lead solders to increase their strength. These solders can be used for joints subjected to high or even subzero service temperatures.

Special high grade Zn, ACS reagent grade Zn, Zamak die casting alloys, ZA alloys, galvanizing brightener alloys, crusher alloy, slush alloys, plates, and rods.

Zinc is used to make many useful alloys. Brass, an alloy of Zinc that contains between 55% and 95% Copper, is among the best known alloys. The use of Brass dates back 2500 years and was widely used by the Romans and is commonly used today, particularly in musical instruments and many hardware applications that must resist corrosion. Zinc is alloyed with Lead and Tin to make solder, a metal with a relatively low melting point used to join electrical components, pipes, and other metallic items. Other Zinc Alloys include Nickel Silver, typewriter metal, and German Silver.

Roughly one third of all metallic Zinc produced today is used in galvanizing. Zinc is used as a protective coating to an item that is experiencing corrosion. The Zinc can be applied to the object by dipping the item into a pool of molten Zinc, but most often this is accomplished through electroplating. Sacrificial Zinc Anodes are used in cathodic protection systems to protect exposed iron from corrosion. Metallic Zinc is also used for many other applications, including, but not limited to, to make dry cell batteries, roof cladding and die castings.

Applications

Die Casting Alloys including Zamak Alloys; Zinc Base Master Alloys for Alloy Additions, Special High Grade Zinc for Karat Gold and other high purity applications; Pure Zinc and Zinc Alloys for Plating; Alloys for Metal Joining

Copper Master Alloys

with: Beryllium, Boron, Cadmium, Chromium, Iron, Lithium, Magnesium, Manganese, Nickel, Phosphorous, Silicon, Tellurium, Titanium, Zinc, Zirconium

Belmont Copper Master Alloys are alloying elements manufactured from high purity Copper and is combined with a high percentages of one or more elements. Our alloys enable casting houses and ingot manufacturers to overcome problems associated with alloying that they may experience when working with molten metals.
Master Alloys are commonly used as additives in the manufacture of other alloys or as deoxidants, degasifiers, desulphurizing agents or of similar use in the metallurgy of non ferrous metals. A Master Alloy can be referred to as a “hardener”, “grain refiner” or “modifier”, depending on the application

There are several reasons for adding a Master Alloys to a melt, the main one being selective composition adjustment. They are used to modify the composition of the molten metal, allowing you to achieve a desired chemical specification. A second important application is for specific performance requirements. Master Alloys have the ability to change the micro-structure of a metal during casting and solidification in order to change its properties. Properties that can be modified include: castability, surface finish, electrical conductivity, mechanical strength or ductility.

The use of a Master Alloy instead of a pure metal can be for economical reasons, since certain elements will have a poor yield or create high losses when melted in pure form. Technical issues may also prevent the pure metals from dissolving completely or the required furnace temperature is too high for a basic casting operations equipment. Our Master Alloys provide the solution by dissolving quicker at lower temperatures while saving valuable time and energy.

Applications

Used to enhance properties of Copper Alloys to increase fluidity, hardness, color, ductility, and others

Forms

Slab, Ingot, Cut Bar, Cubes, Shot
