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.

Forged Copper Advantages

Due to its heat and electrical conductivity, forged copper products are ideal for applications that serve in the Aerospace, R & DMarine 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.

Copper Mechanical Properties 

  • 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
  • Copper has good biofouling resistance
  • Copper retains mechanical and electrical properties at cryogenic temperatures

Forged Copper Benefits

  • Electrical Conductivity
  • Thermal Conductivity
  • Ease of Forming
  • Nonmagnetic
  • Nonsparking
  • High Machinability
  • Flexibility

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 titanium material and Nondestructive Testing. 

Every Scot Forge customer works with a qualified team that will guide each copper forging from inquiry to order placement, manufacturing then inspection and shipping.

Scot Forge Difference

At Scot Forge, we know the importance of getting your parts on-time, as expected. However, for customers new to procuring forgings, ordering a forging that will meet all specifications for end-use applications may be a challenge, which is why finding a trusted supplier and partner is essential. Our employee-owners are here to ensure your project stays on track with our forgings by offering:

Pro Tip - Did you know near-net shapes can save you time and money? Oftentimes, a customer calls to order a disc, which they will later machine down to a more shaped part. By working with our technically trained sales team you can get as close to your finished product shape as possible to optimize your production process.
