Footnotes:

  1. The density and hardness will be fixed when we get the requirements from each customer
  2. The property can be adjusted to be higher than the value in the standard if customer requires
  3. Lead-based grades are available upon request
  4. We have grades to meet the BS 7655 standard
  5. We have oil-resistant compounds for welding cables
