Beryllium Copper Balls

Beryllium Copper Balls
Copper has fantastic heat and electrical conductivity. Copper ballsare not recommended where they are exposed to corrosive agents or high mechanical stress. Copper balls are sensitive to corrosion from a variety of agents and is a soft metal.

Beryllium Copper balls are used in a wide range of applications requiring very high strength and stiffness with good conductivity. Typical uses include electrical/electronic connectors, bearings, and corrosion resistant applications.
