C97® (C19160) is part of Lebronze alloys’ large offer of machinable high performance alloys for connector applications, along with C98® and C99®. It is a heat-treated leaded nickel copper alloy with high electrical conductivity and machinability.
C97® exhibits high mechanical properties in particular (high tensile strength, limited stress relaxation), which makes it suitable for high-range, harsh-environment connectors. It is available in rod (bar) and wire forms.
Applications: extensively used in industries like Aerospace, Automotive and Health equipment, and in many other fields requiring high performance and durability.
Composition, standards, norms: ISO CuNi1Pb1P ; UNS C19160 ; UNS C19150
