Copper grades are considered to be commercial metals for their excellent thermal and electrical conductivity and other featured strength and properties.

These grades are non-magnetic and its round bars are joined by brazing and soldering. Some of the copper grades are welded by different arc, gas, and resistance methods.



Copper grades have six family divisions: brasses, copper-nickel alloys, dilute copper alloy, bronzes, and nickel-silver alloys. Each family may differ when it comes to physical attributes including texture and appearance, chemical composition, and mechanical properties.

If copper alloys are important in your machining and manufacturing processes and the need to obtain copper round bar stock is a necessity, give us a call or request a quote through our website!

As such, please see the table below to view distinctions between the following copper grades.
