Semi-Synthetic and Synthetic for Non-Ferrous
The pioneering of production proven chemistries, combined with timely liaison with caster manufacturers, has led to the most widely used and versatile line of materials for rod casting operations around the world. The latest innovations for the production of cast copper rod are the RichardsApex synthetic rolling compounds. These new materials offer the opportunity to greatly reduce production costs due to the elimination of alcohol and alcohol-related hazards.
