# Hard Drawn (H80) C10100 Copper

H80 C10100 copper is C10100 copper in the H80 (hard drawn) temper. The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare H80 C10100 copper to: wrought coppers (top), all copper alloys (middle), and the entire database (bottom). A full bar means this is the highest value in the relevant set. A half-full bar means it's 50% of the highest, and so on.
