Copper conductors
Semi-products/Conductors
The diversity and the applications of copper conductors are numerous.

From a single wire to a complex cable, from the lowest section to the highest, copper is available, annealed, hard, bare or plated.

A lot of applications use the properties of copper :

  • Energy
  • Telecommunication
  • Welding…

 

The copper qualities generally used for the production of conductors are :

  • ETP copper, or Cu-a1, with oxygen content between 200 and 300 ppm.
  • OF copper, oxygen-free or Cu-c1, with very small content in oxygen (20 ppm max.) able to resist to hydrogen brittleness during a heating.
