Copper-Clad Steel Wire

September 25th Fact-of-the-Day

Copper-clad steel wire is produced by cladding a rod of steel core material with a copper strip and then drawing the clad rod to obtain a desired wire diameter. Both the steel core rod and the copper are thoroughly cleaned prior to cladding to make a complete bimetallic metallurgical bond possible. The drawing process that follows cladding further enhances the bond sufficiently that in the end the bond between the two metals is inseparable. ©2004 Martek International All rights reserved.
