In 1996, Pakistan Cables set up a plant to manufacture High Conductivity Oxygen Free 8mm Copper Rod . This plant was supplied by Outokumpu Castform OY, Finland and uses the upcast system of manufacturing rod. Oxygen Free Copper is particularly suited for drawing into wires.
Numerous satisfied customers, particularly enamel wire manufacturers, will attest to the quality of Pakistan Cables’ Copper Rod. The raw material used is only LME registered “A” grade copper cathodes.
COPPER PURITY – 99.99% Oxygen Free Copper Yielding 101% Conductivity: Pakistan Cables is the only Pakistani manufacturer to have a state of the art Outokumpu Castform Plant from Finland which produces High Conductivity Oxygen Free Copper Rod used in wire manufacturing. This is a 99.99% pure copper with minimum oxygen content which achieves a 101% IACS conductivity. Specific characteristics of High Conductivity Oxygen Free Copper Rod include high ductility, high electrical and thermal conductivity, high impact strength, good creep resistance, and low relative volatility under high vacuum.
