Bimetallic Lugs

Why Bimetallic Lugs from MG Electrica?

We are experts in manufacturing of Aluminum & Copper Bimetallic Lugs & Connectors.

Bimetallic Lugs are mostly useful where an aluminum cable has to be terminated by a copper bus bar or copper contact. If Cable Lugs of only copper or aluminum are used , a galvanic action occurs due to dissimilar contact. The use of bimetallic lugs thus ensures a technically sound and durable joint. The Aluminum barrel is friction welded  to the copper palm thereby achieving the best possible transition between barrel & palm.

Our range of Aluminum & Copper Bimetallic Lugs is having following advantages.

  • Material : Conductivity Aluminum Barrel of 60% IACS & Copper Palm 97% IACS.
  • Final Metal State : Fully Annealed.
  • Jointing Method : Friction Welding
  • Sizes : 16 Sqmm to 1000 Sqmm

Applications : 

MV Terminations

LV Connections on Bus Bar.

Advantages of bimetallic lugs:

  • Safe & low cost both in and use.
  • All copper products are electro-tinned to BS standard and prevents it from corrosion and oxidation.
  • PVC insulation is provided to terminals for exceptional di-electric strength & for supporting
  • Entry to the wire barrel is shock-proof, or bell mouthed for faster and easier conductor entry.
