Percon 19 is a cadmium free copper alloy developed to replace cadmium copper C162.

Key Attributes of Percon 19

  • Engineered to be hard drawn for high strength and high flex life, exceeding the performance of cadmium copper.
  • Greater and more uniform flex life than cadmium copper.
  • Excellent resistance to corrosive environments.
  • Does not contain and cadmium or environmentally hazardous elements.

Percon 19 is available hard drawn bare or plated with silver, nickel or tin.
