High conductivity oxygen free copper rod is the most ductile of all copper grades, and its utilization brings important efficiency advantages in high speed multiwire drawing and magnet wire applications. In order to preserve its properties, special care must be taken when it is produced either entirely from scrap or from a cathode/scrap combination. This presentation describes the effect of some melt pollutants on conductivity and drawability.
