  Nicalfor 1000®iis a range of Copper-Nickel-Tin (CuNi9Sn6) alloys designed and produced by Lebronze alloys (ex. CLAL, CLAL MSX). Its manufacturing process includes solution annealing, work hardening and spinodal hardening to obtain very high mechanical and physical properties.

It is available in strip in coils, sheet and plate forms, as well as wires, rods, and special profiles.

Mechanical advantages:

  • Niclafor® 1000 exhibits very high mechanical properties, such as Tensile Strength and Yield Strength above 1,000 MPa (145 ksi) depending on temper, even at high temperatures.
  • It has an excellent fatigue resistance and low friction, making it suitable for heavy duty applications. For example it used in bushings and bearings, eg. Small end rings in high performance car engines.
  • Niclafor® products high elasticity and formability allow light and durable designs: for example, it is a material of reference in the eyewear industry. Physical properties:
  • Niclafor® exhibits high conductivity, very good corrosion resistance, magnetic properties and shielding effectiveness. It is extensively used in the electronics industry, including aerospace systems, for applications such as EMI shielding and connector parts.

These CuNiSn alloys are Beryllium-free, Lead-free and Cadmium-free, and are compliant with REACH and RoHs regulations. Niclafor ® 1000 can be a substitute to Copper-Titanium and Copper-Beryllium for some applications. Available tempers: TB, TD, TF, TH.



Composition and standards: ISO CuNi9Sn6 ; UNS C72700.
