Electrical Conductivity[edit]

The conductivity of this alloy compared to pure copper needs to be covered in the article. I am not a specialist in this area. I do know that it has to be less.Trojancowboy (talk) 03:04, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

Suggest merge[edit]

Suggest merge from Beryllium copper wire since that is just one shape the alloys can be made into, and the chemistry and properties of the several alloys are already part of this article. --Wtshymanski (talk) 14:25, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

Merged, duplicated text describing alloys removed. --Wtshymanski (talk) 05:19, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

Uses: wire[edit]

This article mentiones in the Uses section that BeCu is used to make wire, but it doesn't really indicate why BeCu is useful for wire, or how the wires themselves tend to be used. In the other bits under the Uses section it elaborates a little; BeCu instruments have these special tone and timbre properties, golf clubs give this feel, tools take advantage of its non-sparking and so on. It would be improve the article to have someone knowledgeable or someone in possession of an appropriate source include particular reasons why BeCu might be used for wire.

I notice that this article and the Beryllium copper wire article have been merged in the past, the information I'm mentioning might have gotten lost in the merge. Kierkkadon (talk) 15:37, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
