Copper Wire Rod

ProductWire rod of 8 mm diameter Cu-ETP-8-CL
ApplicationProduct for drawing on single- and multi-wire drawing machines. Single wires and wire strips drawn from wire rod are used as conductors in leads and electrical cables (e.g. enameled cables, car cables, connection cables, etc.). Wire rod produced in KGHM can be drawn in wide range of diameters on single-wire drawing machines (min. diameter less than 0.1 mm) and on multi-wire drawing machines (min. diameter 0.1mm).
StandardPN-EN 1977, ASTM-B 49, DIN-1708
Dimensions and tolerances8 ± 0,4 mm
Purity of materialImpurities at a level of max. 30 ppm O2 = 150-190 ppm (max. 400 ppm).
Material used in productionWire rod is produced mainly from cathodes produced in KGHM Branches in types: Cu-CATH-1; brand: HML, HMG-B, HMG-S
Standard physical propertiesElectric conductivity at 20ºC: min. 58,8 MS/m (101,4% IACS) Spiral elongation (EN 12893): 450 ± 10 mm or alternative test – Test AR: min. 20% Elongation (200 mm): 44% ± 2% Tensile strength (200 mm): 225 MPa ± 5 MPa Annealing capability A200 min. 20%
Structural propertiesWire rod has fine-grained structure, where oxygen is uniformly arranged. The oxygen content is low enough to ensure good ductility and low recrystallization temperature.
PackagingWire rod is delivered in jumbo coils of approximately 4.7 mt weight, in one piece, on wooden pallets, fastened with PET straps. Each coil is covered with stretch type plastic foil for protection against adverse conditions.
Pallet dimensions: 1750 x 1750 x 150 mm Coil inside diameter: 1130 mm Coil outside diameter: 1800 mm
