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.
