Every Copper Nickel UNS C71500 Electrode is composed of a unique variety of copper and nickel which are both necessary for optimum performance. This combination has provided higher electrical resistance, superior corrosion resistance, and superb weldability. The exact chemical composition is 61-63% copper and 28-30% nickel content, with other constituents such as iron, manganese, sulfur, and arsenic making up the rest. This alloy is typically sold in forms like rods or wire electrodes to facilitate its usage in welding applications, allowing for flexibility during projects.
Copper Nickel UNS C71500 Electrodes offer many advantages when used in welding applications. These electrodes provide a solid and malleable welded joint with excellent corrosion resistance properties, high wear resistance, and durability. The combination of Nickel and Copper yields a metallic bond that can sometimes rival the strong joints formed from steel welding rods. This makes C71500 Electrodes ideal for the marine and industrial settings where corrosion is likely, including for structures exposed to seawater or other harsh environments. Furthermore, because Copper Nickel does not require preheat temperatures as high as those needed for steel alloys, this type of electrode can be used with lower-cost equipment providing users with a more economical solution over time.
