COPPER CCR LINES
A new revolution in the nonferrous metals industry was pioneered by Continuus-Properzi in the early 1960's when Ilario Properzi made available industrial Continuously Cast and Rolled (CCR) copper rod for the first time (1963).
At present, some thirty Properzi CCR copper rod lines are in operation around the world. It is estimated that during the past ten years, approximately 33% of all copper rod produced worldwide at new production facilities came from Properzi CCR lines.
