Qualification of Percon® 24, a New High-Strength Conductor Alloy to AS29606
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) is limited to information about evaluation of a new cadmium-free high-strength copper alloy. The testing described in this AIR was conducted prior to the publication of AS6324 and is intended to provide information regarding evaluation of this new copper alloy. It is recognized that a simple specification such as AS29606 can not cover all possible requirements for performance in every field application. To address this basic issue, the introduction of a new, but similar to already field proven, component requires comparative testing to verify the new component will perform at the same or above level as the already approved component in a broader set of relevant tests.
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) documents evaluation of a new cadmium-free high-strength copper alloy conductor. It provides a basis for testing to establish new copper alloys capable of meeting AS29606 requirements for a high-strength copper alloy conductor.
