Metal Associates supplies copper coils, brass coils, and bronze coils that use the finest and purest metals to meet the needs of many industries, including the electrical, electronics, and microwave industries. The precision processes used to produce our flat rolled and flat wire has given us the reputation for providing excellent metal coils that exactly fit customer custom requirements, including coils cut to specific lengths with tight tolerances. Our staff of experts will use their over 100 years of combined experience to help you find exactly what your project requires.
Our dedication to the highest standards of service extend beyond the basic requirements of completing a delivery. We know that customers expect extra assistance to meet their needs. To that end, Metal Associates offers services such as re-rolling, leveling, and slitting.
Every application has specifications that are unique to the circumstances of the project. The type of coil that is required varies in relation to strength and tolerances. To meet the unique nature of customer designs, Metal Associates offers coils that have been tempered in a variety of ways including dead soft, annealed, quarter hard, half hard, three quarters hard, full hard, and spring and extra spring tempered.
Copper coils are known for their thermal and electrical conductivity as well as their corrosion and wear resistance, which are important factors in the production of coils that are able to withstand harsh conditions. Another attractive feature of copper coils, and a special concern of Metal Associates, is their ability to be scrapped and reused making copper coils very environmentally friendly.
Copper is the industry standard for a durable, nonfailing, and long-lasting metal. One reason for the wide use of copper is its cost effectiveness since it is easier to maintain and requires few repairs or replacement. The ductility and malleability of copper allows it to be formed into a variety of shapes. Flat rolled and flat wire copper can be cut to any lengths and dimensions depending on the application. For many years, copper coils have been an important part of the production of automobile alternators and generators.
Metal Associates’ brass coils are made from copper and zinc and have conductive properties as well as corrosion resistance, making it a perfect material for the manufacture of electrical components. Since brass coils have excellent durability, they are used as electrical connectors, can be fabricated to exacting tolerances, and cut to lengths to fit any application.
Our thinly cut and wound brass strips are lightweight and malleable. They are perfect for applications that need a material that is light with a small diameter. The ductility of brass allows us to shape, cut, and form it to any set of lengths, dimensions, and tolerances to create the perfect sized brass coils for your project.
Metal Associates’ bronze coils are made from the combining of copper with other metals such as tin. It is strong and resistant to corrosion and fatigue. Our bronze coils are used by the electronics industry since bronze is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity. The malleability of bronze allows us to shape, cut, and fit our flat rolled and flat wire coil strips to any application. The long-lasting quality of bronze makes it ideal for harsh conditions since it does not require maintenance or frequent replacement.
Unlike other metals, bronze does not have metal fatigue where metals weaken due to stressful or high-pressure conditions. For this reason, bronze coils have become a major component in automotive manufacturing and marine technology industries. Its popularity in the marine industry is its resistance to saltwater corrosion and rust.
As with other metals, bronze is environmentally friendly and reusable. Once a bronze coil has finished its usefulness, it can be repurposed for the production of other coils but still maintains its original strength, conductivity, and corrosion resistance.

The great variety of alloys we offer is a great advantage to our customers, because those individual alloys have properties that are so different from one another. It does not matter if you require a metal coil that is highly malleable, or you require a metal coil that is incredibly carded. No matter what you need, Metal Associates will be able meet, if not exceed, your requirements.
