VTT and Luvata partner to develop new high strength copper alloy

 

Customer: Luvata

 CHALLENGE

Research and development of an ideal high strength copper alloy that would offer advantages in air-conditioning and refrigeration applications.

 SOLUTION

​VTT studied the composition of over 20 different prospective copper alloys. Five copper alloys identified by VTT
for further research and testing at the various Luvata plants on three continents.

 BENEFIT

The new copper alloy has equivalent heat transfer and pressure characteristics and is now used in the manufacture of high strength ACR tube and branded UNILLOYTM by Luvata. It also delivers significant raw material cost. Two commercial applications approved.
