Lamifil yet again reinforces its position at the forefront of innovation with the release of PowerFil. This 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.
- 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.
- Less use of copper. PowerFil creates opportunities for leaner cable designs with smaller sections offering the same characteristics, allowing operators to save copper weight and costs.
