Products and Process

SILICON COPPER is an excellent reducing agent in the casting of Copper and Copper based alloys. It also serves as a hardener and strengthening agent for Copper. With a melting point slightly under 1600 degrees F, it offers a decided advantage over adding pure Silicon (melting point 2588 degrees F) to copper alloys. Manufactured in ingot form, the alloy is offered in 10 percent, 15 percent and 20 percent concentrations with less than one percent impurities.
