A1350: Clear Organic Finishes for Copper and Copper Alloys
pdf icon [86 Kb]
On some occasions, builders, architects and building owners want to preserve the color and appearance of a copper alloy rather than letting it naturally patinate. This publication describes clear coatings available for this purpose, their uses and any limitations.
A1349: Benzotriazole: An effective corrosion inhibitor for copper alloys
pdf icon [109 Kb]
Benzotriazole has proven to be very effective at preventing surface corrosion and tarnishing of copper and copper alloys. This publication describes its effectiveness and uses.
A7030: Electronic Connectors Alloy Design Guide

A series discussing some of the basics of physical properties, fabrication and applications of copper and copper alloys to assist parts designers, materials engineers, metallurgists and materials buyers.

7024: Multibarrier Copper-Base Containers for High-Level Waste Disposal

Several design and closure techniques are suggested for a robust, composite waste container composed of a copper overpack surrounding an inner shell of high-strength aluminum bronze. The thermodynamic and kinetic stability of the metals is discussed including their corrosion- and creep-related properties in anticipated repository environments. Reprint, ANS Nuclear Technology, Vol. 104, November 1993.
