The Difference Between T1 Copper, T2 Copper and T3 Copper

Copper is a kind of pure copper with excellent ductility, conductivity, weldability and thermoplasticity. Common bronze plates on the market are T1, T2 and T3. This blog post will tell you how T1, T2 and T3 copper differ in terms of chemical composition, physical properties and application areas. thermoplastic

The Introduction Of Copper

Pure copper, also known as red copper, is industrial pure copper. It has a density of 7.83g/cm3, a melting point of 1083 degrees, is non-magnetic, has good electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity and corrosion resistance, and has toughness. Red copper surface is rosy red, the formation of oxide film, purple, so generally become red copper, also known as oxygen containing copper, red copper, copper.

The difference between T1, T2 and T3 copper

How are their chemical compositions different?

The copper content of T1 is the highest, above 99.95%, and the total impurity does not exceed 0.05%; T2 copper refers to copper silver alloy, its copper content is more than 99.90%, there is no requirement for phosphorus; Finally, T3 copper, copper content of more than 99.7%, the total impurity content does not exceed 0.3%.

What are the differences in their physical properties?

1.Hardness: The hardness of T1, T2 and T3 copper is gradually decreasing, of which T1 copper has the highest hardness and T3 copper has the lowest hardness.

2.Density and elongation after breaking: T1 copper has the highest density and elongation after fracture, while T3 copper has the lowest.

3.Electrical conductivity, tensile strength and ductility: T1, T2 and T3 copper are gradually decreasing, in which T1 copper is the best, and T3 copper is the worst in electrical conductivity, tensile strength and ductility.

Characteristics and application fields of T1, T2 and T3 copper:

Due to its good electrical conductivity, processing performance and corrosion resistance, T1 copper is mainly used in the production of electrical wires, electronic components, conductive screws and other conductive and thermal equipment, as well as chemical evaporators, storage devices and various pipes and other corrosion resistant equipment.

T2 copper is widely used in the power industry, such as the manufacture of distribution devices, circuits, etc., can effectively transmit and distribute electrical energy while reducing power loss and line heat generation. In addition, it is also used to manufacture wire and communication cable cores.

T3 copper contains more impurities to reduce electrical conductivity and thermal conductivity, mainly used as structural materials to manufacture parts in machinery and equipment, such as gears, bushings, nuts and some conductive nuts, washers and car water tanks with low requirements.

copper application

In general, T1, T2 and T3 copper have clear differences in chemical composition, physical properties and application areas. Therefore, in the selection to make a reasonable choice of their own use and needs, if you have needs can also come to consult us in detail, we will provide you with the most suitable for your needs of copper.
