Round copper ferrule (RCU) is intended to be pressed on single round strand wire ropes, for instance on preventer wires or used as end stop. Copper as material suits well together with stainless steel wire rope, to avoid galvanic corrosion in saltwater environments.
The expected strength regarding this end-termination is approximately 50% of the MBL of the wire rope (informative only).
Round copper end stops are not recommended for use in high strength applications.
- Material: Copper (almost 99,9%)
