Quality of copper plays a very important role in wires
Wires and cables are integral components of all industries. Copper is a vital element as the conductivity of copper is high. Thus, the quality of copper plays a very important role in wires i.e. use of Electrolytic Tough Pitch (ETP) grade copper wherein the purity of copper in percentage terms should be a minimum 99.90 per cent as per national standards.
The power sector looking at investments worth Rs.15,000 lakh crore over the next five years, and cables and wires - which are the main ingredient to enable this development - will witness a huge growth trajectory.
