Continuous Casting of Dilute Copper Alloys for Drawing to Wire in Specialist Applications

Many modern industrial applications of copper-based conductor wires call not only for high electrical conductivity, but also for other matching physical properties, including high tensile strength, high softening temperatures, creep resistance, abrasion resistance, and corrosion resistance, while also maintaining good ductility. This paper shows examples of dilute copper alloys offering these properties and techniques and equipment which have been developed by Rautomead for reliable, continuous production to narrow chemical tolerances.
