Description of material HOVADUR® K250:

HOVADUR® K250 is a thermally precipitation hardenable copper alloy. In heat treated condition, the alloy combines great hardness and high resistance to heat with good thermal conductivity. We also produce the alloy HOVADUR® K265 which is based on the same chemical composition as HOVADUR® K250. Its even higher quality is due to vacuum technology and special processes.

Application examples HOVADUR® K250:

  • Inserts in moulds für plastic injection which require good thermal conductivity as well as good strength values (also in connection with surface coating)
  • Thermally high strained parts which are susceptible to fire cracks
  • Inserts in steel moulds in areas requiring a faster cooling rate
