Materion Launches High Conductivity QMet™ 300 High Performance Strip Alloy for High-Current Applications

MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Materion Corporation (NYSE: MTRN) recently introduced QMet™ 300 alloy —
its newest high-performance strip alloy which offers a unique
combination of high conductivity, strength and formability to meet
current and emerging customer needs in the consumer electronics and
automotive markets.

QMet 300 strip alloy is a copper-chromium-silver material with
conductivity greater than all other alloys of similar strength, ALONG
with sharp formability and stress relaxation resistance comparable to
that of copper beryllium.

“We created QMet 300 strip alloy to enable new designs that have been
unachievable for customers across a range of markets and applications,”
said Clive Grannum, President of Materion Performance Alloys and
Composites. “Its high conductivity, strength and formability set it
apart from other alloys available in the marketplace. We expect it will
be used to solve materials problems in an even wider range of industries
than those currently identified, including the appliance and server and
data connections markets.”

The high conductivity of QMet 300 alloy allows design engineers to
create smaller high current and high heat transfer components to fit
into tighter spaces, making it an unmatchable solution in many consumer
electronics and automotive applications, including:

  • EV Charging Contacts
  • Appliance Power Contacts
  • Computer Power Contacts
  • Backplane, Midplane and CardEdge Connectors
  • Photovoltaic System Connectors
  • Heat Spreading for Consumer Electronics
  • Automotive Wire Harness Terminals and High Voltage Connectors

QMet 300 is the newest addition to the QMet family of products, which
also includes QMet 200 — a copper-chromium-nickel-tin alloy that is an
ideal solution for high temperature-small space environments associated
with consumer electronics.

With QMet alloys, Materion can accommodate smaller batch orders with
shorter lead times, giving engineers quicker access to these materials.

The company anticipates developing other industry-first QMet strip
products to address customers’ future needs.
