Copper alloys offer the properties needed for long‐term safe aircraft operation. The design of an alloy to provide a closely targeted optimum property combination has become an increasingly sophisticated process. Suppliers of high performance alloys must fulfil the stringent quality assurance requirements of the aerospace industry, and have intimate knowledge of alloy metallurgy/microstructure and resulting properties. Describes alloys produced by Columbia Metals Ltd.
