Cupronic 2.5 is a copper-based resistance alloy with enhanced anti-corrosion properties. It has very low resistivity and is suitable for use in lower temperature applications.
It is available in solid, stranded or bunched constructions down to a wire size of 0.08mm. Cupronic 2.5 is particularly useful in low-temperature heating applications such as underfloor heating and blanket wires.
Cupronic should not be confused with the Thermocouple Compensating alloy Cupronic 12 which has a different chemical composition and resistivity.
