Copper-Clad Steel (CCS) conductors are composed of a steel core with a continuous and constant copper cladding that is thoroughly bonded throughout. CCS conductors combine the strength of steel with the high conductivity and corrosion resistance of copper. Copper clad Steel Wire is the ideal solution for grounding wire for power type applications. Composed of a steel core with copper cladding, the steel wire gives the wire its strength and the consistent layer of copper provides electrical conductivity and resistance to corrosion. Copper cladding bonded to core carbon steel ensures the copper will not flake, crack or peel when the wire is twisted, installed or buried.
