Lamifil yet again reinforces its position at the forefront of innovation with the release of PowerFil. This brand-new, unique alloy offers significantly superior properties compared to conventional CuMg. With 23% more conductivity compared to CuMg 0,5, PowerFil is the top alternative for a Cd-free world.

PowerFil alloy
  • Minimised energy loss
    PowerFil allows operators to save up to 12,000 euros per km during the lifetime of a messenger wire.
  • Reduced CO2 and higher efficiency
    This ‘green’ alloy offers approximately 23% better resistance than standard CuMg 0,5 alloys.
  • Increased rail capacity
    PowerFil offers less resistance and heat losses, allowing more trains to run on the same track.
