C173 Beryllium Copper

C173 Beryllium Copper is available in ductile, heat treatable tempers and in mill hardened tempers. Alloys are used in a wide range of applications requiring very high strength and stiffness with good conductivity. C173 has the same mechanical and physical properties of those of the unleaded Alloy 172.
