Co 0.20-0.65
1900-2050 1650-1825 High strength, hardness, with good resistance to corrosion. Suitable for salt water immersion applications. Excellent replication of intricate detail.

C82500 20C * Be 1.90-2.25
Co 0.35-0.70
Si 0.20-0.35
1850-2050 1575-1800 High strength, hardness, wear resistance and excellent fluidity. Ideal for investment, shell, sand, ceramic castings. Meets requirements for Class 4 RWMA resistance welding. Excellent replication of intricate detail.

C82510 21C Be 1.90-2.15
Co 1.00-1.20
Si 0.20-0.35
1850-2350 1575-1800 An excellent fine grain structure, particularly where superheating is necessary to flow metal in long thin sections. Produces a superior as-cast finish when exceeding normal pouring temperatures of other beryllium copper casting alloys. Properties are similiar to 20C. Meets RWMA Class 4 requirements. May be cast in same types of molds as 20C.

C82600 245C * Be 2.25-2.55
Co 0.35-0.65
Si 0.20-0.35
1850-2000 1575-1750 High strength, hardness, wear resistance and excellent fluidity. Low pouring temperature is ideal for pressure and permanent mold applications.

C82800 275C * Be 2.50-2.85
Co 0.35-.070
Si 0.20-0.35
1825-1925 1575-1700 Highest strength and hardness of BeCu alloys; excellent wear resistance and fluidity. For extremely fine detail pick-up in ceramic or pressure cast processes. Lowest pouring temperature of BeCu alloys allows most any type of molding process to be used.

Cu-4Be Be 3.50-4.50 A beryllium containing copper base master alloy used to introduce beryllium into new melts or to replace beryllium lost through oxidation in remelts.

* When fine grain castings are required, 0.02 to 0.12 Ti can be added to the above chemistries. The designation would then be CT.
