Copper Nickel Fasteners
Copper nickel fasteners are alloys containing iron, manganese, copper and nickel content. Strength of the Cu-Ni alloy is enhanced due to the addition of iron and manganese. Cupronickel is not damaged when in contact with sea-water. Because when exposed constantly to sea-water, the Cu-Ni fasteners produce an oxide layer. This oxide layer protects it from damage. Corrosion resistance, ductility and tensile strength are some of the characteristics of Cu-Ni. Copper-nickel does not undergo harmful Macrofouling. Thermal conductivity is also good in copper-nickel fasteners.
