AURUBIS FOXROD is directly cast, oxygen-free copper rod, which can also be low alloyed depending on the customer's requirements. The total content of alloying elements can amount to up to 5 %.
FOXROD is produced with our high-quality cathodes with a copper content of more than 99.995 %. The product offers many advantages:
The production process
Foxrod for continuous extrusion
AURUBIS FOXROD is perfectly suited to continuous extrusion applications thanks to its very clean metallic surface free of organic elements.
Special attention is given to purity throughout the FOXROD manufacturing process. Furnaces and casting dies are made out of copper-repulsive, chemically inert materials to avoid possible contamination. The rod is produced without any protective wax, while special measures are taken to avoid oxidation of the rod.
As a result, our FOXROD presents an extra clean metallic surface.
Foxrod for wire drawing
AURUBIS FOXROD combines < 3 ppm oxygen content with high electrical conductivity. Moreover, it contains almost no impurities. These characteristics make AURUBIS FOXROD an excellent starting product for processing all types of copper wire, including extra fine wires.
Foxrod is used for wires for which hydrogen embrittlement is an issue, such as fire-resistant cables.
Foxrod for Conform production
AURUBIS FOXROD is perfectly suited to continuous extrusion applications thanks to its ultraclean metallic surface free of organic elements. The casting dies used during the AURUBIS FOXROD manufacturing process immediately create the desired rod diameters for bars & profiles, typically between 12.5 and 25 mm.
