Copper CUPHC

CUPHC : alloy

CuPHC is an oxygen-free copper alloy with residual phosphorus. 
Cuivre CuPHC

Cu PHC standards

At the international level, the standards are different and Cu PHC is designated in different ways: 
  • France (AFNOR): Cu-PHC
  • Germany (DIN): SE-Cu58
  • Europe (EN): CW020A
  • ASTM : C10300


Use of the CUPHC

CuPHC copper is used for electrical equipment, tubes, metal and glass seals, as well as for applications requiring welding in a reducing atmosphere.
