Cumin 11

Cumin 11 is a copper-based alloy with additions of manganese and nickel, with a very low EMF against copper. Particularly suited for DC circuitry with its low-temperature coefficient.

A low density reduces weight requirements. Excellent use in custom-made thermocouple applications. Also for electric resistance standards, precision wire wound resistors etc.
