THE BERYLLIUM COPPERS
OF LITTLE FALLS ALLOYS
Beryllium Copper is our specialty. We have pioneered the use of this metal since its commercial inception and have led in its development and uses.

|Heat Treatable, Alloy 25 (C17200 and C17300)
Alloy 25 is an age hardening alloy which attains the highest strength of any copper-base alloy. It may be age hardened after forming into springs, intricate forms or complex shapes.
It has superb spring qualities, corrosion resistance and stability, as well as good conductivity and low creep
|Tempered, Alloy 25 (C17200)
This tempered material has been age hardened and cold drawn in our mill. No further heat treatment is necessary except for a possible light stress relief. It is sufficiently ductile to wind on its own diameter and can be formed into springs and most shapes.
Tempered wire is most useful where the properties of Beryllium Copper are desired, but age hardening of finished parts is not practical.

- Overview of Beryllium Copper
Beryllium Copper, also referred to as alloy 25, is a copper alloy that is comprised of 0.5% beryllium and other alloying metals. This copper alloy is excellent for metalworking, forming, and machining.
- Physical Properties of Beryllium Copper
You can find Beryllium Copper in many common products such as: springs, wire, and load cells. The alloy is non-ferrous and can retain its shape under persistent stress and strain.
- Beryllium Copper Alloys
Beryllium copper combines between 0.5-3% of beryllium with a copper alloy. Sometimes it can also be referred too as spring copper or copper beryllium.
