Copper Nickel

Product Forms


Copper Nickel 90/10

Copper Nickel 90/10 is the most commonly used wrought copper alloy for marine engineering and can be found in seawater systems for naval, commercial shipping and the oil & gas markets due to its good strength, corrosion resistance and inherent resistance to biofouling in salt water environments. Righton offers the full spectrum of product types in this alloy including pipe & fittings in both Metric and EMMUA size ranges catering for all applications.

Copper Nickel 70/30

Copper Nickel 70/30 is stronger than the more common copper nickel 90/10 and is able to withstand corrosion at higher velocities in marine applications, making it the favourable choice in submarine systems. Righton carry the UK's largest range of product in this alloy and are the only stockholder of DEFSTAN-02 879 metric tube specification released for use on UK naval vessels.

High Strength Copper Nickel 835

High strength Copper Nickel DEFSTAN 02-835 offers superior strength and toughness whilst maintaining a high level of corrosion resistance and is applied where both these characteristics are critical. It is specified for both naval and offshore applications such as bolting, fasteners, valves and shafts.
