Sequoia Brass & Copper sells alloy 182 chromium copper. Chromium copper is the primary copper alloy used for resistance spot and seam welding. This alloy achieves good hardness and electrical conductivity through a combination of heat treatment and cold work. C18200 is utilized for electrodes, holders, adaptors, as well as numerous electrical applications where resistance to deformation at high temperature is required or when higher mechanical properties than C11000 are required.
Common fabrication processes for 182 chromium copper are bending, cold working, drawing, forging, hot working, rolling, and swaging. 182 chromium copper comes in the form of bar, plate, sheet, strip, rod, shapes, tube and wire.
