AMPCOLOY 83 is a wrought copper-base alloy containing nominally 1.8% beryllium. It offers good formability in the unhardened condition and can be strengthened by precipitation hardening. It has a combination of high strength and hardness, good ductility, good electrical and thermal conductivity, excellent resistance to wear and fatigue, and high resistance to general corrosion. Among its many uses are components for resistance welding, bushings and shafts. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, elasticity, tensile properties, and shear strength as well as fatigue. It also includes information on corrosion resistance as well as forming, heat treating, machining, joining, and surface treatment. Filing Code: Cu-310. Producer or source: Ampco Metal Inc..
