About the company
Copperweld®’s story is one of American innovation and determination. Throughout their 100 plus years, the one constant has been their workforce- dedicated and determined, they are the heartbeat of Copperweld®.
Since ancient times, mankind has been trying to combine the strength of steel with the non-corrosive properties of copper. In 1915, that idea became a reality. Copperweld® engineers discovered a molten-weld process for permanently bonding copper to steel. Ever since, their company has been considered the leader in innovation in the bimetallic industry. The original process was replaced by a solid cladding process in 1979.
Genuine Copperweld® Copper-Clad Steel (CCS) wire and strand have been utilized and relied upon for over 90 years as strong, non-corrosive, efficient grounding conductors. Combining the strength of steel with the conductivity and corrosion resistance of copper, Copperweld® provides a long-lasting, low impedance path to earth.
Copperweld® delivers outstanding reliability and performance in a variety of applications at every step in the power utility process: generation, transmission, and distribution of current.
Copperweld® wire is also less susceptible to theft than solid copper because it is a bimetallic product and does not have the high scrap value of pure copper. The copper layer in our Copperweld® CCS cannot be removed, and so it is practically worthless to would-be black marketers.
Climate change concerns, coupled with high oil prices and increasing governmental support around the world, are driving increasing renewable energy legislation, incentives and commercialization. Renewable energy in its many forms- wind, solar, tidal, geothermal, biomass is expected to be one of the fastest-growing industries of the 21st century.
Renewable energy generation plants still face the same challenges as traditional utilities. As such, Copperweld® is an engineered solution to copper for grounding purposes in these installations.
