Looking for CuAg 0.4 wire

03/07/2007 11:36 AM

Can someone sell me small quantities of CuAg 0.4 (alloy C11400) wire?

I need D4.2mm, D7.0mm and D10.0mm wire/rod

I have found suppliers of the alloy but none has the possibility to deliver small quantities.

Just a suggestion.

Why not ask the suppliers you've located for the names of their major customers for the wire you need then contact them to see if they would resell it to you in small quantities?

Hi Gwen,

if you switch your design to other alloys it may be easier.

Either copper-zircone that is used in car starters or silver-copper.

Both have very good electrical conductivity together with good mechanical strength.

If its really small volume you would not care about the price per kg.

Silver-copper will be available from any gold or silver smith or from the suppliers of these.

May be a local education of goldsmiths is existing, they have vacuum casting equipments that can produce near 1kg castings of most alloys.

Good luck

Rhabe,

The problem is that I want to test a certain interesting feature of CuAg

The higher recrystallistation temperature.

I know that car electronics manufactureres are also looking for new alloy's, for the same reasons.
