Power Distribution Products

Copper Bar: Rectangle, Square, Round

Most Common Electrical AlloysSpecifications
110 and other alloysASTM B187, ASTM B152/B152M, ROHS Compliant

Rectangularround, and square copper bar is offered in ETP copper within the power distribution market. Electrolytic tough pitch (ETP) copper is the most common type of copper available and most frequently used in electrical applications due to its conductivity, though additional copper shapes and sizes area available. ETP copper 110 has a wide range of applications based on its conductivity, corrosion resistance, workability, and aesthetic.

Rectangular copper bus is provided in various edge types: full round edge (FRE), radius edge, and square edge. Custom shape extrusions are also available while all products are available in a variety of finishes: bare, tinplate, silver flash, and silver plate. All copper products are produced to ASTM standards and are ROHS compliant.

Copper Coil Strip
