Copper Fibers & Powders

Copper is used in friction materials due to its high thermal conductivity and its support in creating and maintaining a stable transfer layer between the friction material and the opposite material (usually brake pad and brake disc). Wear and noise values are reduced substantially.

We offer both Copper Fibers and Copper Powders; electrolytic Copper Powders can be supplied as well. Powder/fiber morphology depend on the production process; fibers can be cut from wires or shaved from blocks (swarfs), powders can have various shapes.

Copper Powders are also used in carbon brushes and many more applications.
