The aluminum rod is the primary raw material in the manufacture of wire and cables. The use due to the properties inherent to aluminum: electrical conductivity, strength, antikorrozinymi properties. Prepared rod rolling ingots of aluminum on the wire-rolling mill, or a method using a continuous casting and rolling with use of the mold. When marking indicates the method for producing wire rod: AK - obtained by rolling aluminum ingots on a rolling machine and AKLP - by continuous casting and rolling. Manufactured aluminum rod having a diameter in the range of standard 9 - 25 mm, probable deviations in the ranges set by the standard. Available in solid rod, semi-solid and soft. The solid aluminum rod is available in two grades, a soft wire rod and semi-solid - three. Class is due to the value of the electrical DC resistance. In the production of any of the standard varieties katanok, depending on its inherent chemical and physical parameters are used and the aluminum stamp A7E A5E, containing silicon and titanium allowable impurities, chromium, manganese. GOST are requirements for roundness, electrical resistance, mechanical characteristics. The aluminum rod is shipped in special coils with weight from 600 kg to 2.5 tonnes. The main consumer of aluminum rod is the electrical industry. Wire rod is used as a base in the manufacture of wire used in power units, electricity, electrical current collectors, the equipment for power plants, electrical wiring.
