Nickel-containing alloys

CARODUR® - nickel-containing alloys

CARODUR materials are beryllium-free, environmentally friendly, thermally precipitation-hardenable copper-nickel base alloys.

The combination of heat treatment and work hardening gives the materials their typically high strength and hardness as well as high wear resistance and fatigue strength.
The possibility of carrying out the age hardening on both the semi-finished and finished part explains the increasing importance in the fields of die-casting technology, welding technology, electrical engineering, slide bearing technology as well as machinery and apparatus engineering.
