Thermal conductivity industry (widely used in heat exchangers, etc.); anti-corrosion industry (corrosion-resistant containers, plate heat exchangers, desalination equipment, ships, etc.); decoration industry.
The purity of copper and aluminum, volume ratio of copper layer and interfacial bonding strength are the most key parameters, which determine its conductivity, mechanical properties, processing properties and service properties.
In order to meet the requirements of electric conductivity in the conductive industry, the copper materials used shall meet the material requirements of T2 copper in GB/T5231, and the aluminum material shall meet the material requirements of 1060/8030 aluminum in GB/T3190.In order to ensure the electric conductivity of copper clad aluminum composite materials, it is necessary to ensure that the copper cladding and the aluminum substrate meet the requirements of standards firstly.
The computerizedfinite element analysis shows that the best cost performance is achieved when the volume ratio of copper cladding of the copper clad aluminum composite materials is 20%. At this time, the current carrying capacity is up to 89% of T2 copper bars.The electric conductivity of materials can be changed by adjusting the volume ratio of copper cladding properly, to meet the different requirements of industrial applications. In general, the volume ratio of copper claddingshall not be less than 15% or more than 30%. The higher the volume ratio of copper cladding, the better the electric conductivity is.
The interfacial bonding strength is one of the basic properties for composite materials. The bonding strength of copper and aluminum is directly related to the application and safety of materials.Whether the material will be delaminated during the bending, punching and shearing, and whether the stress produced by thermal expansion and contraction will destroy the bonding layer in the area with large temperature difference are directly related to the interfacial bonding strength.The test and application demonstrate that the interfacial bonding strength (shear strength) is more than 35MPa, which can meet above application requirements.
The overall test of material parameters is carried out for the copper clad aluminum composite bars of Luoyang Copper One Metal Materials Development Co., Ltd by the authoritative testing organizations, such as National Analysis and Testing Center of Nonferrous Metals and Electronic Materials, National Quality Supervision and Inspection Center of Electronic Control and Distribution Equipment, andQuality Inspection and Testing Center ofPower Line Equipment in Power Industry, which meet the requirements of standards.
