Abstract:
In the automobile, technology and environmental demands have evolved beyond the performance capabilities of traditionally used connector contact materials such as brass (C26000), tin-brass (C42500), phosphor bronze (C51000) and copper iron (C19400), (see Table 1). Beryllium copper alloys (C17410 and C17200) meet the performance demands of the new automotive environment. With a combination of strength, conductivity and resistance to stress relaxation, there is good reason why beryllium copper contact material is transitioning into automotive applications along with high performance electronics.
