Bohler-Uddeholm BeCu Alloy 172 Mold Material
Categories: Metal; Nonferrous Metal; Beryllium Alloy; Copper Alloy

Material Notes: Beryllium copper alloy

A high strength beryllium copper mold alloy with high thermal conductivity.

BeCu Alloy 172 is characterized by:

  • High thermal conductivity
  • Good corrosion resistance
  • Good polishability
  • Good wear resistance
  • Good resistance to galling
  • Good machinability
  • High strength and hardness
  • Excellent weldability

The special properties of BeCu Alloy 172 beryllium copper alloy make it a suitable mold/core/insert material for a wide variety of molding situations but especially where a combination of high thermal conductivity, corrosion resistance and good polishability are needed.

  • Blow molds: pinch offs, neck rings and handle inserts.
  • Injection mold: molds, cores, inserts.
  • Injection nozzles and manifolds for hot runner systems.
