Copperclad

AFL's Copperclad Steel Wire is the ideal solution for grounding wire for power type applications. Composed of a steel core with coppercladding, the steel wire gives the wire its strength and the consistent layer of copper provides electrical conductivity and resistance to corrosion.

To manufacture Copperclad Steel Wire, carbon steel (low, high strength and extra high strength) is bonded with a uniform layer of oxygen-free coppercladding to achieve 30% and 40% IACS (International Annealed Copper Standard) conductivities. The material is available in a single wire, 3, 7 and 19 cable strands with some sizes jacketed to give the wire a different appearance to copper.


Copperclad Steel Wire from AFL can be jacketed to further reduce copper theft and is available in black with green stripe or grey.

High Strength (HS) and Extra High Strength (EHS) copperclad steel wire provides the same conductivity and corrosion resistance as copper while maintaining the high strength of steel.
Copperclad Composite (CCC) Conductors provide strength and conductivity by combining hard drawn copper with 30% conductivity EHS Copperclad Steel Wire.
Copperclad Steel Wire is a strong, non-rusting, efficient grounding conductor. It is composed of Coppercladding that is permanently bonded to the central steel core of each wire. Copperclad provides the same conductivity and corrosion resistance as copper while maintaining the high strength of steel. Dead Soft Annealed (DSA) Copperclad Steel Wire is very flexible for easy preparation and installation.
Copperclad Steel Wire can be jacketed to further reduce copper theft and is available in black with green stripe or grey. Available conductor sizes are 7#9, 7#10, #2 Str, #4 Str, #2 Solid, #4 Solid and #6 Solid.
