2070 – 06 – Copper Alloys
Pure copper has a poor strength-to-weight ratio. However, its many beneficial qualities make it a great candidate to use as part of an alloy. The most popular elements alloyed with copper is zinc – a combination that results in brass. Brass is used when metal needs to have both conductivity and strength.
Another alloying element commonly combined with copper is tin. The combination of tin and copper creates bronze. Bronze has great strength and resistance to wear. It is often used for pipefittings and ship parts.
