Description of material HOVADUR® K240:

HOVADUR® K240 is a thermally precipitation hardenable copper-nickel-silicium alloy with addition of chromium. The alloy is optimized for high hardness and strength. At the same time, it shows sufficient thermal conductivity combined with good resistance to corrosion and abrasion. HOVADUR® K240 is applied in many cases which require a Be-free alloy.

Application examples HOVADUR® K240:

The alloy is often applied in plastic injection as a Be-free alternative: Nozzles and hot runner systems in injection moulds, parts for tempering systems
