Description

Alloy M25 from Materion Performance Alloys is a free machining, high performance copper alloy. M25’s properties minimize signal distortion in coaxial RF connectors and reduce power loss in circular connectors and contact probes. M25 is available in spooled or coiled wire product forms, and in different tempers to accommodate diverse design requirements. After machining and forming operations, M25 parts can be easily heat treated and plated to obtain maximum mechanical and electrical performance. Applications requiring stability to 175° C or reliable contact force in miniaturized designs specify Alloy M25. In demanding electronic applications, M25 provides performance and reliability superior to any free machining copper alloy.
