An extreme-strength cupro-nickel alloy manufactured and developed exclusively.

Proprietary forging and heat treatment techniques enable Copper Alloys to guarantee unmatchable mechanical properties in this high-strength alloy. 

The T-1000 cupro-nickel alloy composition is a combination of copper, nickel, iron, zinc and aluminium. This combines to give the technical name CuNi14Al2.  

Main properties and uses of T-1000 

The copper-nickel alloy excels when used in extreme environments. Thanks to its composition, its physical properties make it highly corrosion-resistant, anti-galling and resistant to hydrogen embrittlement. 

High-strength copper alloys can be used in a range of industrial settings due to their life-extending properties. Desirable applications include valve and pump bodies and actuators within the defence and oil and gas industry. Aerospace settings can also benefit from using the T-1000 alloy in landing gear bushings, sleeves, refuelling connectors and highly stressed aerospace parts. 

The T-1000 alloy thrives in marine defence applications that demand extreme strength and corrosion resistance. The material’s ability to resist biofouling and a lack of marine growth is another quality which makes T-1000 perfect in marine components.
