Oxygen Free Copper (OFC) is a copper alloy that has been electrolytically refined in order to decrease the oxygen levels present to less than .001%. As a result, Oxygen Free Copper is highly conductive, and is also often known as Oxygen-Free High Thermal Conductivity (OFHC). Oxygen-Free Copper is mainly used in applications requiring high conductivity and exceptional ductility.
As well as ensuring high levels of electrical conductivity, more than any other grade of commercial copper, this oxygen free material also gives improved qualities for formability and joining. Oxygen free copper can be used for vacuum engineering, transformers & motors, generators, switchgears, electrical instruments.
At S&D Non-Ferrous, a leading UK stockist of Non-Ferrous metals, we keep Oxygen Free Copper material in grade C103, and in a variety of forms, including Oxygen Free Copper Plate and Oxygen Free Copper Sheet, as well as Oxygen Free Copper Round Bar, Oxygen Free Copper Square Bar, Oxygen Free Copper Hollow Bar, Oxygen Free Copper Flat Bar, and Oxygen Free Copper Hexagon Bar.

S & D Non-Ferrous are stockists of possibly the largest selection of oxygen free plate in Europe. Our Oxygen Free Copper Sheet oxygen free copper sheet is available in both grades; CW008A and CW009A (electronic grade). which have individual benefits under different circumstances.
Our CW008A Oxygen-free Copper sheets are available in a variety of thicknesses from ¼ inch up to 2inch and, our CW009A electronic grade oxygen free copper plates are available in thicknesses ranging from 10mm to 100mm thick. We will also tailor cut your copper sheet to any length you require.
S&D Non-Ferrous stocks Oxygen free copper rods and bars that are ideal for use in applications requiring high conductivity and exceptional ductility.
Our oxygen free copper bars can be purchased in a range of diameters from 6mm up to 254mm, and we will also cut your oxygen free copper rods to size so they are ready for use as soon as you receive them.
S & D Non-Ferrous’ variety of Oxygen-free copper bar profiles includes:
- Oxygen Free Copper Round Bar
- Oxygen Free Copper Square Bar
- Oxygen Free Copper Hollow Bar
- Oxygen Free Copper Flat Bar
- Oxygen Free Copper Hexagon Bar.
