Copper Nickel Tele Control Plate

Below, we’ve shown a picture of a Copper Nickel Tele plate on top and our 7075-T6 Aluminum plate under. The 20% Nickel content makes the Copper look closer to a subtle Gold. These plates are solid polished metal, no plating of any kind. 

Copper nickel alloys offer excellent corrosion resistance, especially in marine salt water environments. These various alloys also have important additions of iron and manganese, which are necessary to maintain good corrosion resistance in the harsh environments. Aside from being very corrosion resistant to sea water, copper nickel alloys are very thermally stable. Copper nickel is most commonly used in applications such as electrical and electronic products, tubes for condensers in ships and power plants, various marine products, and firefighting equipment.
