Aluminum alloys for busbars
- By shifting from copper to aluminum, weight is lowered by 45%, and the cost is also reduced.
- EC1: Compared with the pure-aluminum 1050-O, it has the same level of high conductivity and 1.5 times greater strength.
- EC2: Conductivity is 57% of copper. The amount of electric current is the same as copper when the sheet thickness is 1.8 times higher.
