red copper powder is a shiny orange-red metallic powder that is mainly used in cold casting techniques. It can be mixed with a liquid bonding agent (such as polyester or polyurethane resin) to make a paste that can be moulded and hardened to create composite castings that mimic pure metal ones.
Several types of powdered copper products are available in the market and the most popular one is the red copper alloy powder. This product has the characteristics of uniform and complete clad, high bonding strength, strong antioxidation capability, good compatibility, and bright color.
This product is widely used for the production of various oil-impregnated bearings. It has the properties of low cost, excellent mechanical property and abrasive resistance. It can be applied to the construction of machinery, automobiles, etc.
The raw material of the red copper powder has the properties of high purity, good electrical conductivity and anti-corrosive property. It can be used as a raw material for the production of oxychloride cements that have non-sparking and fungicidal properties.
It is a reducing compound of lead, zinc and copper. It is prepared by reducing the ionic species of these metals by hydrazine hydrate or ascorbic acid.
It has the characteristics of low production cost and enhanced source utilization and recovery. It can be used for the preparation of anti-corrosive paint for ships. It is also useful for the coating of threads in petroleum drilling pipe to aid in breaking them when dismantling the equipment.
