Beryllium Copper Alloy 25 (UNS C17200/CDA 172)
Technical Data Sheet
|Chemical Composition Limits|
CDA 172 Beryllium Copper is commonly used due to it's high strength and hardness compared to other commercial copper alloys. CDA 172 strength and hardness is similar to that of steel. To achieve it's high strengths whilst still maintaining acceptable levels of toughness for many industrial applications CDA 172 is age hardened. Toughness, fatigue strength, corrosion resistance etc can be modified and controlled by either underaging or overaging during the precipitation hardening process of the alloy.
