Silver Bearing Copper bars are a variation of ETP copper, which is the most common of all the coppers, but it includes small amounts of silver. Silver bearing copper rods offer mechanical strength, increased electrical and thermal conductivity, as well as a high resistance to heat and corrosion. When adding in the silver, it increases its recrystallisation (softening) temperature, with little effect on the electrical conductivity.
Although silver bearing copper rods only have a machinability rating of 20%, the properties and characteristics of the metal mean it is a versatile product and suitable for a great number of applications, from conductors and busbars, trolley wires and cable strips, to radiator and electrical motor parts.
We stock silver bearing copper bars in CW013A and it is available in a number of formations. You can purchase our silver copper as a sheet or a round, hexagon or flat silver bearing copper bar.
