Strength and electrical conductivity of deformation-processed Cu-15 Vol Pct Fe alloys produced by powder metallurgy techniques

Powder metallurgical techniques have been employed to prepare the precursor billets in the preparation of Cu-15 vol pct Fe alloys by deformation processing. It has been demonstrated that by (1) using high-purity gas-atomized Cu powders blended with commercial high-purity Fe powders and (2) controlling the time/temperature processing conditions within specific limits, it is possible to produce Cu-Fe deformation-processed alloys with strength/conductivity properties matching those of Cu-Nb, Cu-Ta, and Cu-Cr alloys. These properties are significantly superior to the best commercial alloys.
