n Copper containing about 2.7% beryllium and 0.5% cobalt, used for blow molds and insertable injection-mold cavities. The small percentages of Be and Co greatly increase the strength and hardness of the copper whole preserving its high thermal conductivity and corrosion resistance. Beryllium copper is easily pressure cast and hobbed into mold cavities.
