Copper Rod Process

Malleable, ductile and an excellent conductor of heat and electricity, copper has been used by mankind for thousands of years. Another very important characteristic of copper is that it can be recycled over and over, as it is infinitely recyclable, without ever losing its essential physical properties – and we do that!

Elemental Copper Rod Process

Electrolytic Tough Pitch Copper has become the standard feed material for the production of electrical conductors across the world. In September of 2020 SDI LaFarga Copperworks is adding this process to our list of capabilities in order to better serve our customers by providing copper rod that is suitable for their most demanding applications.

SDI LaFarga’s Elemental Rod is produced from virgin copper cathodes and bare bright copper from the cleanest sources, producing products that are 99.9% pure copper and meet ASTM B-49 standards for C11000 or C11040 specifications.

Shaft furnace capacity: 470,000,000 lbs. annual capacity, 250,000,000 lbs. in conjunction with the Refining Furnace.

Q-Select™ Sorting Process

In the production of our Infinity product, the COPPERWORKS process to identify copper and remove unwanted elements from the base material is more than sorting, it is a selective process that raises the standard and quality of the material to a 98% copper content. With our Q-Select Sorting Process, we identify and select the incoming copper units so a higher quality level of reclaimed material is used in manufacturing our Infinity rod.

COPPERWORKS’ Refining Process

Our unique proprietary copper-refining process is a direct result of our company’s culture of innovation. As experts in copper, we use a precise formula to produce consistently clean, high-quality rod that meets your specific needs.

Q-ssurance™ Process

During our Infinity Rod process, metal purity is critical to make certain that our products consistently exceed our customers’ expectations for conductivity and quality. Our Q-ssurance process focuses on the chemistry of the molten metal before the casting process begins, assuring that purity is achieved every time in order to exceed these high standards. This is one more way that we ensure that COPPERWORKS Infinity Rod meets your exacting demands.
