Copper Cathodes

Cathodes made of copper

Copper cathodes are the basic building blocks of the copper production. They are the starting point for processing copper. With a purity of at least 99.99% the copper cathodes made by Brixlegg are certified as Grade A by the London Metal Exchange (LME) and registered as the brand “BRX”. They comply with the EN 1978 standards, the requirements of the IWCC and the ASTM B115.

Dimensions: 1000×1000 mm
Weight: 55-65 kg

Given their high levels of purity and high conductivity, Brixlegg copper cathodes are employed primarily for the production of continuous cast rod. Further applications are continuous and discontinuous casting plant, especially for the manufacture of copper products in the grades Cu-OFE, Cu-OF1 pursuant to EN, Cu-PHCE, CuAg(OF) and Cu-ETP1. The billets and cakes are used to produce workpieces for high-vacuum technology, superconductor technology and microelectronics.
