[copper clad aluminum wire] To compete with pure copper
- Jan 23, 2018 -

Copper clad aluminum wire wants to compete with pure copper, pure copper conductor strength, elongation ratio is larger than copper clad aluminum conductor, which means that pure copper is better than copper clad in mechanical properties.

From the perspective of cable design, the mechanical strength of pure copper conductor is better than that of copper clad aluminum conductor, which is not necessary in practical application.

The copper clad aluminum conductor is much lighter than the pure copper, so the cable of the copper clad aluminum is lighter than the pure copper conductor cable in overall weight, which will bring convenience to the transportation of the cable and the erection of the cable.

In addition, copper clad aluminum is a little softer than pure copper, and the cable produced by copper clad aluminum conductor is a bit better than the pure copper cable in terms of softness.
