Composition and properties
The most common and industrial manufacture kinds of copper-Nickel alloys include:
- Copper (base) with 10% Nickel;
- Copper (base) with a 30% Nickel;
- Copper with 25% Nickel and from 0.05 to 0.4% manganese;
- Copper (base) with 45% Ni (alloy called «Constantan»).
All copper Nickel alloys consist of only one phase,
Copper in the alloys gives them enhanced ductility, resistance to corrosion and reduced resistivity, especially at low temperatures. Copper 90/10 and 70/30: feature resistance to corrosion in sea water (70/30 Copper has higher mechanical strength, however, 90/10 Copper are better able to resist fouling of surfaces by biological forms).
Increased corrosion resistance in marine and fresh water and other chlorine-containing environments allows to use the alloy for the production of sea water cooling systems and desalination plants. Due to good resistance to marine corrosion of Copper alloys are 90/10 and 70/30 are used for condensing systems and seawater desalination plants, as well as in the manufacture of pipelines in chemical plants. Due to the fact that 90/10 Copper requires no surface protection and hence, provides additional security, it is used for brake and hydraulic suspension systems and cooling systems in cars and other vehicles. Alloys composed of copper with the addition of 25% Nickel and 0.05−0.4% manganese is commonly used for the manufacture of coins and medals. Constantan composed of copper (base) and 45% Nickel, used in the construction of precision resistors. This property allows the resistor to operate practically with the same resistance, regardless of temperature. For this reason such alloys are used for the production of thermocouples.
