Copper and Copper Alloys:
Compositions, Properties and Applications
CDA Publication 120 - Copper and Copper Alloys

About this Publication

The EN series of standards for copper and copper alloys offers a selection of materials to suit a very wide variety of end uses. They represent a consensus agreement on those most frequently ordered by consumers. 

Publication 120, revised in 2005, summarises the main compositions and the range of properties for the most commonly specified copper and copper alloys.  The contents list and individual tables are shown on this page.

Whilst our publication has been prepared with care, we can give no warranty regarding the contents and shall not be liable for any direct, incidental or consequential damage arising out of its use. For complete information on any material the appropriate standard should be consulted.
