Copper cathodes

Hindalco's copper cathodes are branded as Birla Copper and Birla Copper II. Known for high purity and consistent quality, Birla Copper cathodes are square shaped, with 99.99 per cent copper purity levels, produced using the Mount ISA electro-refining process. They meet the international quality standards BS 6017 1981 (1989) and u-Cath-1 / ASTM B-115 (1999) and are registered as LME A Grade. They are high grade and have the lowest levels of various group and individual impurities.

The Birla Copper laboratory has been accredited by NABL (National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories) in accordance with the standard ISO/IEC 17025:1999.

Birla Copper cathodes are used in the manufacture of continuous copper rods for the wire, cable and transformer industries, and copper tubes for consumer durable goods and other applications in the form of alloys and sheets.
