The BrushFormâ„¢ 65 is a copper beryllium alloy designed for use in the appliance market where high strength, high conductivity, and excellent formability are required. According to the company, the alloy can be used in any application that requires increased power. The material is said to respond to the demand for high conductivity alloys due to the increase in power and miniaturization in electronic interconnects. In miniaturized contacts, temperatures rise due to a smaller cross sectional area, which must be compensated for by high electrical and thermal conductivities. The decreased contact beam length results in higher design stresses, driving the need for materials with high yield strength. BrushWellman
