Cu-Ti alloys with titanium in the range of 0.5-6.0 wt% were developed to evaluate the effect of the titanium content and heat treatment on microstructure, hardness, and electrical conductivity. The hardness of the Ti-added copper alloys generally increased with the increase in titanium content and hardening was effective up to the 2.5 wt%-Ti addition. Microstructural examination showed that the second phase of started to precipitate out from the 3.0 wt% Ti-addition, and the precipitate size and volume fraction increased with further Ti addition. Aging of the present Cu-Ti alloys at for 1 h increased the hardness; however, the further aging up to 10 h did not much change the hardness. In the present study, it was inferred that in optimal Ti addition and aging condition Cu-Ti alloy could have the hardness and electrical conductivity values which are comparable to those of commercial Cu-Be alloy.
