Coppersteel and Alumosteel- Cables and Wire

In Conduground, we offer a range of cables and the highest Quality bimetallic wires, through a metallurgical process known as “Cladding”, achieving the union of Copper and Steel, making it practically inseparable.

Cable and Wire

Steel-Copper: as an alternative of copper cable, Coppersteel combines steel’s high strength with copper’s conductivity and corrosion resistance.

Copper clad steel cable in compliance with CFE E0000-33. Norm ASTM B228.
Percentages of conductivity are: 21%, 30%, 40% or 53% (IACS), depending on the thickness of the copper layer, which provides high corrosion resistance and ensures a long product life. It is more malleable and less expensive than copper and has the strength of steel.

Copper clad steel wire in compliance with CFE E0000-33. Norm ASTM B227.

Its composition consists of a steel core coated with a layer of copper, depending on the thickness of this layer, the Coppersteel wire presents a conductivity of 21%, 30%, 40% or 53% IACS.

Bimetallic wire can be used in ground systems, as a ground counterpoise in transmission lines and as wire conductor in lightning rods systems etc.

These cables and wires offer excellent benefits as shown below:

  • It is impossible to separate copper from steel, due to its metallurgical process.
  • The copper clad steel wire is 65% stronger than annealed copper.
  • It is stronger and harder to cut than solid copper, thanks to the strength of steel.
  • With no scrap value in the black market.
  • The Coppersteel wire conductors have a wide range of use.
  • CopperSteel Wires and cables are compatible with grounding systems built by copper wires.
  • The copper clad thickness of at least 6% of the total radius ensures complete immunity to corrosion of steel conductor.
  • The perfect coupling of copper allows the conductor to only have a coefficient of linear expansion and be able to operate with a temperature control up to 125 ° C.

Cable and Wire

Steel-Aluminum: combining aluminum’s lightness, flexibility and conductivity, with the Copper’s high conductivity and its corrosion resistance.

Alumosteel cable is a compound of Alumosteel wires, with better performance than other conductors. The Alumosteel conductors come in two different numbers of wires; 3 and 7. It comes in five IACS of conductivity as well; 20.3%, 30%, 40%, 47% and 53% depending on its aluminum clad.

The Alumosteel is made of cold drawn steel clad with pure aluminum through a metallurgical process. It can be found in 20, 3%, 30%, 40%, 47% and 53% IACS of conductivity .

Cables and wires benefits:

  • It is impossible to separate Aluminum from steel, because of its metallurgical process
  • Because of Steel’s strength, Alumosteel is stronger and harder to cut than solid copper.
  • With no scrap value in the black market.
  • Compared with steel cable, it has same strength with better conductivity and durability
  • With an aluminum cover layer of 25% of the cross sectional area of the cable.
