The Advantages and Disadvantages of ASTM B42 C10200 Copper Material Properties, C10200 Properties


  • Exceptional Electrical Conductivity: Due to its being highly electrically conductive, C10200 is a good match for applications such as connectors, conductors, or components where the flow of current is of the highest value.

  • Resistance to Hydrogen Embrittlement: H2 exposure is a major issue in many applications. C10200 offers the benefit of its hydrogen embrittlement resistance. Due to its property, this material is highly reliable in long-term use.

  • Corrosion Resistance: The ASTM C10200 oxide layer is durable, non-scaling and adherent at high temperatures, hence appropriate for glass-to-metal seals and other environments that demand corrosion resistance.

  • Formability: Its excellent formability makes it possible to do deep drawing and shaping of the parts as required during manufacturing processes.

  • Low Magnetic Susceptibility: UNS C10200 copper has a magnetic permeability at a minimum, that's why it is used in technologies where magnetic interference should be negligible or should be of the lower possible value.


  • Limited Strength: Over C10200 properties being good in electricity properties, it is not so hard and it doesn't have high strength in mechanics. In addition to the structural applications, there is a need for further reinforcing.

  • Cost: C10200 Oxygen free copper, in comparison to the standard copper alloys ( copper alloy), is more expensive because it is produced with specialized methods of manufacturing that ensure its high-grade purity.

  • Susceptibility to Stress Corrosion Cracking: C10200 material properties is thus susceptible to the stress corrosion cracking in particular conditions, which makes the design process to be very careful.

  • Limited Wear Resistance: Unlike other materials, it has a softness and is therefore prone to wear and tear especially in places where there is a lot of friction.

  • Not Ideal for High-Temperature Applications: Being C10200 having a low melting point limits its application in places with high-temperature conditions.
