• Silver bearing copper contact wires offer high conductivity and high softening temperatures, which bring great advantages for high speed and high frequency rail systems.

• CuMg alloy, CuAg alloy and pure copper conductors which have high breaking stress, flexibility, strength and mechanical properties are ideal for use all types of catenary constructions.

• Overhead electric railway systems
• Mass transit and high speed systems
• Both AC and DC applications
• Light rail, tram and trolley bus systems
• Overhead traveling cranes
