Coaxial Cable

CCS central core conductors

Skin effective

Copperweld’s coaxial central core product line of CCS conductors provide coaxial cable manufacturers with the strongest, most reliable medium for specialty coaxial cable designs.

Copperweld’s CCS copper skin is perfectly suited to efficiently propagate RF and other high-speed signals used in backup camera and other Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, (ADAS) related systems.  The steel core of CCS provides exceptional tensile strength, flexibility and resiliency, during the manufacturing process and end-user application.

Copperweld’s CCS cores typically serve the following coaxial design applications:

  • High-speed data
  • Video
  • Cellular
  • 5G

Our coaxial cores are most commonly available in hard-drawn, bare, stranded or single end CCS in 40% conductivity. Copperweld offers a wide variety of reel sizes, material, conductivities and other options.

Copperweld Automotive Benefits

Strength & Resiliency

Copperweld CCS's high-carbon steel core provides strength, flexibility and the ability to stretch more than 15% — perfect for applications subject to repetitive motion.


The linear weight of our CCS is more than 10% lighter than solid copper which can help lower overall vehicle weight, save on freight expenses and improve the ease of installation.


Copperweld CCA provides the weight savings achievable with aluminum wiring while offering the added convenience of standard copper connection sytems.

Energy Efficient

Equivalently sized Copperweld CCA provides a larger cross-sectional area, resulting in overall operating temperatures, which can improve long-term reliability.

Corrosion Resistance

Appropriately insulated Copperweld CCS is perfectly suited for severe environmental conditions involving salt, water and typical under-hood contaminants.

Theft Deterrent

Reduce costly in-factory wire theft. Copperweld’s metallurgically bonded conductors have extremely low street value, making it unattractive to copper thieves.
