SAE 1010 Copper-plated

SAE 1010 Copper-plated introduction

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.


Used extensively in the electrical and automotive
industries, our copper-plated steel delivers benefits for
your products and processes. To help you optimize
your operations, we can also customize our pre-plated
products to meet your specific requirements.


The copper layer offers high
electrical conductivity and resistance to corrosion. It is also highly
scratch-resistant – making our products suitable for decorative casings
in addition to functional components. Our pre-plated strip comes in
a choice of surface finish to suit your application.


The consistent quality and tight tolerances of Tata Steel’s pre-plated
strip ensure reliable processing. The copper layer acts as a lubricant for
outstanding formability. Our products offer good brazing properties.
They also provide an excellent substrate for post-plating.
As an added benefit, we can tailor the chemical composition, mechanical
properties and plating thickness to meet your specific product and
process needs.

Main benefits of our copper-plated steel include:
end-products of consistent and reliable quality

improved end-product performance

trouble-free, repeatable processing

minimized waste

extended tool life

control of substrate and base metal properties

Equivalent material: EN DC04
