Description

A comprehensive and substantial source of information on the properties, production, processing and applications of copper and copper alloys, of interest to metallurgical, development, design and testing engineers in the automotive and other industries using copper.
The authority behind this book - the German Copper Institute - was founded in 1927 and is the technical-scientific advisory center for all questions concerning applications and the processing of copper and copper alloys in Germany. For more than 75 years, the technical scientific advisory and information service of the institute has been providing expert help free of charge. It is supported by the copper industry, the European Copper Institute (ECI) and The International Copper Association. It is competent and active in matters concerning the use of copper not only in automotive but also in all kind of industrial applications, in building construction, in electrical engineering and in questions concerning copper's importance for health.
