Chromium Zirconium Copper (CuCrZr)
- Zirconium addition to chromium copper improves creep resistance at high operating temperatures and reportedly reduces sticking of electrodes to the work during spot welding of galvanized materials.
- Popular as moulds and dies for continuous casting due to its excellent electrical and thermal conductivity, hardness and ease of fabrication
- Low toxicity with excellent mechanical wear resistance and high radiation resistance
- Used extensively as electrodes in resistance welding and as circuit breakers in the electrical sector and also as rod extensions for seam and spot welding.
