Copper-plated products


Copper-plated steel

Tata Steel offers a range of cold-rolled steel strip products electroplated with copper. These high-performance products are a cost-effective alternative to solid copper. Copper plated steel exhibits excellent brazeability, outstanding formability combined with optimum heat resistance. The deep-drawing properties enable reliable production of components in demanding shapes.
