Silver Bearing Copper is an adaptation of ETP copper, the most common of all the coppers, however it features the addition of small amounts of silver. Silver bearing coppers offer elevated mechanical strength, increased electrical and thermal conductivity, as well as a higher resistance to heat and corrosion.
Although silver bearing copper only has a machinability rating of 20%, the properties and characteristics of the metal mean it is a versatile product and suitable for a plethora of applications, from conductors and busbars, trolley wires and cable strips, to radiator and electrical motor parts.
