Tungsten Copper Brick
Tungsten copper alloy (tungsten copper, Cu-W, or W-Cu) alloy is a pseudo-alloy of copper and tungsten. As copper and tungsten are not mutually soluble, the material is composed of distinct particles of one metal dispersed in a matrix of the other one. The microstructure is therefore rather a metal matrix composite than a true alloy.
The alloy combines the properties of both metals, resulting in a material that is heat-resistant, ablation-resistant, highly thermally and electrically conductive, and easy to machine.
Parts are made from the Cu-W alloy by pressing the tungsten particles into a desired shape, sintering the compacted part, and then infiltrating with molten copper. Sheets, rods and bars of the alloy are available as well.
Commonly used tungsten copper alloy brick contains 10 to 50 wt. % of copper, the remaining portion being substantially all tungsten. The typical properties of the alloy depend on its composition. The alloy with less wt. % of copper has higher density, higher hardness and higher resistivity. The typical density of CuW90 alloy, with 10% of copper, is 16.75g/cm3 and 11.85g/cm3 for CuW50 alloy. CuW90 has higher hardness and resistivity of 260 HB kgf/mm2 and 6.5 ̦.cm than CuW50.
Chinatungsten Online provides tungsten copper alloy brick composites to be used extensively in thermal mounting plates, chip carriers, flanges, and frames for high-powered electronic devices. With the thermal advantages of copper with the very low expansion characteristics of tungsten, tungsten copper has properties similar to those of silicone carbide, aluminum oxide, and beryllium oxide. The thermal conductivity and low expansion also make tungsten copper alloy an excellent choice even for extremely dense circuits.
