2 Copper Single wire.

Single wires are produced either hard drawn or annealed and are used as raw material in subsequent drawing operations to ASTM B1 or ASTM B3 or other international standards.
Single wires are also used in downstream plating operations to produce:

  • Tin plated single copper wire to ASTM B33
    Diameter range: 1.00 – 2.60mm
    Tin layer: 25 micron thick

  • Nickel plated single copper wire to ASTM B355
    Diameter range: 0.80 – 2.60mm
    Nickel layer: 27% by weight

3 Multiwire.

Bare, tin or nickel plated single wires can be cold reduced and annealed from 1.00mm down to 0.05mm and then wound together onto reels with up to 24 ends.

Multiwire is used as inlet wire for subsequent bunching or stranding operations to ASTM B3 or ASTM B33.

 

 

4 Bunched/Stranded wire.

Annealed single wires or Multiwire, bare, tin or nickel plated is used as inlet material for bunching and stranding operations. Wires can be formed in cross-sectional areas up to 360mm² as normal bunched, concentric strand or multi-strand rope constructions.   Different pitches can be accommodated according to the final specification.

Stranded cable is either used in its bare condition or subjected to further insulation, stranding, screening and armouring processes.

Specifications: ASTM B8, ASTM B172, ASTM B173, ASTM B174, ASTM B286
