Copper speciality wires

CuCd1,0 – C16200

Copper Cadmium is no longer accepted in most applications as a conductor alloy on account of the toxicity hazard and risk of respiratory disease associated with cadmium, both in initial manufacturing and later in recycling. In service, copper-cadmium poses no threat to health. The environmental friendly alternative is CuMg or CuAg. Lamifil can offer this alloy with a maximum of 5 ppm Oxygen.
