Copper cathodes obtained by electrolytic refining. This method allows you to get the metal suitable for technological purposes. Pure copper is deposited on the titanium cathode, runs a four-flushing of sediment, and then has a very high purity of up to 99.99%. The most common and popular in the industry, according to the normative content of impurities, copper brand: M00K, M0K and M1K. Thus M0K copper cathodes have impurity content of not more than 0.001% (bismuth, sulfur, oxygen, nickel, etc.). The characteristics of copper cathodes M0K have: a reddish color, high heat and electrical conductivity, low chemical reactivity and high corrosion resistance. Copper has the advantages over other metals - ductility, high strength, density, workability. One of the most important indicators of cathode copper is its thermal and electrical conductivity (close to the conductivity of silver). The chemical composition of copper cathodes grade IOC complies with GOST 859-2001. Most are made of copper cathodes in the form of individual plates - (4...6) h860h1000. One side of the sheet has a smooth structure and the other roughened. Cathodes are cleared from the electrolyte and are packed in batches of 1500 kg. Each of the parties is marked: the date of manufacture, brand copper cathode, series and number of baths, packing number. Technically refined copper is used for processing into semi-finished products in the form of ingots for rolling, wire rod and so on. For alloys, the melting process to copper cathodes refiner is added to the required number of alloying elements. Copper cathodes used in the production of electrical cables, tires for automobiles, the copper powder in the manufacture of pipes, in various heat exchangers in engineering, etc.
