copper cathode

What is a copper cathode?

What is a copper cathode? This product is made of copper. Copper cathode is formed in the process of electrolytic refining at very high temperatures. This process begins with the concentration of copper. To obtain anodes with a purity of 99.99%.
Copper itself is known as the third most widely used metal in the world. This metal is very resistant to corrosion. It also has high electrical conductivity and heat. Copper due to its high conductivity compared to aluminum. It is widely used in the electrical and electronics industry (about 50%).
Iran itself has very large copper reserves. For this reason, it is one of the best producers and exporters of copper. Copper cathode is used to produce products that must contain high purity copper and copper alloy.

How is a copper cathode formed?

To produce this product, the first step is to pour copper blisters in the anode. After that, electrolytic operation is performed on it. After these measures, they are immersed in a tank of copper sulfate and sulfuric acid. At this point, as the current begins to flow, the copper ions begin to transfer to the cathode. In the last stage, 99.99% pure copper cathode is formed.
Copper cathode sheets are produced in dimensions of 0.5 to 1 cubic meter and thickness of 3 to 20 mm.

Application of copper cathode    

Copper cathode is used to produce various shapes of ingots. This product is also used to make cast iron rods. Which is widely used in wire, cable and transformer industries.
Copper cathodes are the raw materials of many products such as copper rods, copper sheets, rice production and copper shields and.. This product is also used for bronze and brass alloys and… as raw materials used in the transportation, electrical and construction industries.
