Wrought and unwrought coppers product standards cover the available grades of copper materials, with different properties, to suit different applications. These European Standards (EN) cover different product forms (e.g. tube, wire, rod) and define compositions, property requirements, tolerances, sampling procedures, conformity verification test methods and delivery conditions. The applicable standards for wrought and unwrought coppers are given in the two tables below, one for electrical and one for non-electrical applications.
The materials are ordered by description and EN number. The material conditions defined by the standards are given and—where mandatory—this is indicated. The appropriate product standard should be consulted for detailed information on properties and ordering. Visit our page with details of standards and links to the BSI shop.
Compositions, typical properties and uses of wrought and unwrought coppers are provided elsewhere.
