Forged Copper Alloys

Forged Copper for Superior Heat Transfer & Electrical Conductivity

Forged copper products are used in a range of industries because of its durability, lightweight metallic properties, superior heat transfer, electrical conductivity and corrosion resistance.  

Copper Alloy Inventory 

From creating rings, discs and blanks, to complex forged shapes, our metal forging technology creates forged copper products that exceed customer expectations.While copper is usually forged to meet customer specifications, Scot Forge does offer copper forging services to these common standards: ASTM B150,  ASTM B170,  MIL-C-15726,  MIL-C-24679.

Scot Forge holds an inventory of various grades for customers to order for their copper forging needs and specifications:

On-Hand Copper Alloys

C00000 C63000
C10100 C63200
C18000 C71500
C18150  C72420
C18200  ZC-1 ™ (Chrome Zirconium Copper)

Forged Copper Advantages

Due to its heat and electrical conductivity, forged copper products are ideal for applications that serve in the aerospace, marine and naval industries. Copper forgings perform well in these industries because of the combination of properties copper provides. 

The aerospace industry prefers copper forgings for its thermal and electrical characteristics and abrasion resistance.  The marine and naval industries benefit from copper’s resistance to seawater corrosion and intrinsic biofouling properties.

Mechanical Properties of Copper

  • Some pure copper grades exhibit very high thermal and electrical conductivity but have low strength
  • Other grades are able to obtain higher strengths at the loss of come conductivity

Forged Copper Capabilities

In addition, we provide value-added processes such as saw cutting, heat treating, contour torch cutting, destructive testing, metallurgical analysis and Level III nondestructive testing for all copper forging. We ensure to deliver a finished product that is ready to be installed.

Quality Assurance

Scot Forge is proud to be ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100D certified, and our team is committed to providing outstanding customer satisfaction. Further pursuance of aerospace products has led to NADCAP accreditation in both Heat Treatment for copper material and Nondestructive Testing. 

Every Scot Forge customer gets placed with a qualified team that will guide each copper forging delivered from the inquiry stage to order placement, expediting and shipping.
