Copper alloys generally have sparking nature due to its high ductility.

A. True

B. False

The question was posed to me in examination.

This interesting question is from Copper Alloys topic in section Foundry Introduction & Materials of Casting-Forming-Welding II

Right answer is B. False

Easiest explanation: Copper alloys components are generally of non-sparking nature, that’s why they are preferred in manufacturing of electrical equipment and components where there is a chance of fire hazard. And the ductile nature of copper alloys is totally independent to its non-sparking nature.
