Olin C197 is a second-generation high performance alloy developed by Olin Brass. It has a strength and bend formability similar to C194 (see Alloy Digest Cu-360, September 1978), but with 25% higher electrical and thermal conductivity. High conductivity allows C197 to replace brasses and bronzes in applications where high current-carrying capability is required. Also, the strength of C197 provides higher contact forces when substituted for many lower strength coppers. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, elasticity, and tensile properties. It also includes information on corrosion and wear resistance as well as forming and joining. Filing Code: CU-627. Producer or source: Olin Brass.
