Cadmium-free wires: High tensile strength and environmentally friendly

Nexans to present its range of Cd-free wires at the wire trade fair in Düsseldorf, which will take place from 12-16 April, 2010. You can find us at stand B42 in hall 09

Bramsche/Neunburg vorm Wald, April 12, 2010 - Nexans Deutschland GmbH is offering users, who require a material with a particularly high mechanical loadability, an environmentally friendly solution with its wires based on cadmium-free copper alloys. Nexans markets qualities in Germany, which withstand high mechanical loading and satisfy European regulations – the use of cadmium in wires and cables has been banned in the EU. Due to the property mix of the copper alloys, they are used, for example, in the automotive industry or by the military – both examples of application areas, in which a long service life, reliability and uncompromising safety rank among the primary objectives.

Nexans takes into account the individual requirements by means of different diameters. Similar to standard copper wires, Cd-free alloys are also available in different cross-sections down to a wire diameter of 0.05 mm. In this connection, the quality processes and machines of the Nexans plants in Bramsche and Neunburg vorm Wald guarantee consistently high quality from the first to the last metre of every batch.
