red copper materials

Red Copper Materials

Because of red copper good ductility, high thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity and corrosion resistance, it has become an important engineering material in the field of metal and electrical engineering.

The alloy is a mixture composed of two or more different metals (or one or more metals and non-metals), which has a new type of performance that does not exist in any single metal. Because it can make full use of the beneficial properties of each component, it is often better than pure metal performance.

Therefore, alloys have been widely used in various fields of national economy.

What Are The Metal Materials Of Corona Rings?

Let us introduce the common polishing and piping bending corona rings aluminum materials.

Since aluminum material is high strength with light weight, our partners can benefit from the material because the corona products made of these are high purity and light for transportation and easily installed.

Good Weldability: Grade 3A21/6061/6063/1060 aluminum material have good weldability for corona rings production process. After the welding process, our Highv workers will set about doing polishing process for aluminum corona rings. As you know, the soft aluminum material is easily for this process. Not only the diameters of corona rings can influence the corona effect, but also the corona rings need to be polished bright to achieve more smooth and no burr surface finish to ensure better corona shielding control effect.

Light Weight: High purity aluminum density is 2.7g/cm3.
This feature is high cost-effective no matter what is for industry production still for the shipment.
Choosing the aluminum material for your corona rings projects can help you save your more time and money.

Corrosion Resistance: Aluminum alloy naturally protects itself by forming a layer of oxide in its surface when in contact with the atmosphere that prevents further corrosion. So this feature can help aluminum corona rings a longer operation life period.

Environmentally Friendly: Aluminum has a very low melting point therefore it can be easily melted and 100% of it can be reused.
The combination of all these amazing properties make aluminum the material of choice for aluminum corona rings and components applications.

Difference Between 6061 Aluminum Material And 6063 Aluminum Material

Many customers are not very clear about 6061 aluminum material and 6063 aluminum material, so they don’t know which one to choose, especially when they need to buy a large amount of aluminum corona rings. So what is the difference between 6061 aluminum material and 6063 aluminum material?

Aluminum alloy is a kind of metal material. According to the composition, it can be divided into pure aluminum, aluminum alloy, aluminum-magnesium alloy, aluminum-magnesium-silicon alloy, aluminum-magnesium-silicon-copper alloy, etc. It has good corrosion resistance and processing performance, easy coating and galvanizing, and has excellent weldability.

6061 aluminum is a heat treatment pre-stretching process based on Al-Mg-Si high plasticity alloy. 6063 is an Al-Mg-Si series high plastic alloy with excellent extrudability and good corrosion resistance.

Difference Between 6061 Aluminum Material And 6063 Aluminum Material:

1. Different states: The 6061 material is a pre-stretched T6 state. The 6063 material is a T5 state.

2. Different mechanical properties: the mechanical properties of 6061 T6 are significantly better than those of 6063 T5. The tensile strength of 6061 alloy is greater than that of 6063 alloy.

3. Different appearance: The impurity content of the 6061 material is higher than that of the 6063 material.

4. The chemical composition of the two materials is different.

What Are The Advantages Of Using 3A21 Aluminum Materials For Corona Rings Production?

Grade 3A21 aluminum material have a lot of advantages, such as light weight, high strength, good corrosion resistance, good weldability and more.

1.3A21 aluminum material is a kind of high strength aluminum alloy with good formability, weldability and machinability. It is one of the most widely used non-heat treatment alloys (pure aluminum).

2.3A21 aluminum alloy has the advantages of light weight, high strength and good corrosion resistance.

3.The 3A21 aluminum material has moderate strength than 1 series pure aluminum and excellent weldability and formability. The tensile strength is 170-310mpa, the yield strength is 115-170mpa, and the elongation is 13%.

4.3A21 aluminum material can be used in the manufacture of corona rings and other structural parts with high formability requirements for sheet metal parts that are not stressed by heat treatment but require high crack sensitivity.

Why Use Red Copper For Corona Shielding Spheres Production?

Red copper is used to produce corona shielding spheres/balls for wear-resistant, electronics, and electrical appliances.

The reason why red copper is used to produce corona shielding spheres:

1. Red copper has a low content of iron and other non-magnetic elements.

2. The hardness of red copper ball is higher than that of steel ball, which is convenient for producing copper balls with large diameter and high hardness.

3. Red copper is easy to be carburized in the atmosphere, which can be used for the production of ultra-high temperature resistant copper spheres.
