Features and Application Notes
The ISA-CON® product family is renowned by its unique combination of mechanical strength and electrical conductivity. ISA-CON®414 is a RoHS compliant copper chromium alloy to replace cadmium chromium copper C18125 or PD135. It fulfills the requirements of the ASTM B624. ISA-CON®414 achieves a mechanical strength of 414 MPa at 85% IACS in annealed conditions. It has a good corrosion resistance and
can be coated with nickel, tin or silver. ISA-CON®414 has good flex live properties and high softening resistance for use at higher temperatures.
Form of Delivery
ISA-CON®414 is supplied in the form of round wires and stranded wires in the range of 0.05 to 0.3 mm Ø. Flat wires available on request. Also pre-drawn wire in the range of 0.80 to 1.20 mm Ø is available on request.
ISA-CON®1000+ achieves a mechanical strength of 1,400 MPa at 61% IACS which is a factor of 30 increase in electrical conductivity compared to steel having identical mechanical strength and a factor of 2 to 4 increase in mechanical strength compared to similarly conductive Cu alloys. The alloy can be coated with nickel, tin or silver in order to ensure surface properties such as solderability, coatability and corrosion resistance. ISA-con®1000+ is also developed for excellent flex life and high softening resistance for use at higher temperatures or to withstand high temperatures during the extrusion process.
Form of Delivery
ISA-CON®1000+ is supplied in the form of round wires and stranded wires in the range of 0.05 to 3.00 mm Ø. Flat wires available on request. ISA-CON®1000+ is available in three combinations of conductivity and strength. For special applications the combination of electrical conductivity and mechanical strength can be adjusted between 850 MPa and 1,400 MPa according to customer demands.
