Copper ferrules are commonly used with stainless steel wire rope to avoid galvanic corrosion in saltwater environments.
German manufactured generally in accordance with European Standard EN13411-3 as the copper material is not recognised in this standard.
Pressing copper ferrules takes 25% higher pressure than the equivalent size aluminium ferrules.
High grade copper in soft condition.
A termination performed correctly will normally withstand a tensile strength of 90% of the minimum-breaking load (MBL) of the wire rope. Note, however, that verifying tests should always be done in order to find out the strength.
The strength of slings for lifting activities using copper ferrules is not guaranteed and tests should always be carried out to verify the strength of the termination.
Use the TECNI hand crimping tool (160.100.125) to press code 1 ferrules by hand or the TECNI YCP-120 for a hydraulic hand crimper.
