Aluminium: Aluminium is remarkable for the metal’s low density and for its ability to resist corrosion due to the phenomenon of passivation. Corrosion resistance can be excellent due to a thin surface layer of aluminium oxide that forms when the metal is exposed to air, effectively preventing further oxidation. The yield strength of pure aluminium is 7–11 MPa, whilst aluminium alloys have yield strengths ranging from 200 MPa to 600 Mpa. Aluminium is nonmagnetic, making it suitable for use with single core cables, and does not easily ignite, ensuring that it does not contribute to the burning process in the event of a fire. CMP Products utilises 5000 series copper free aluminium for its all-round performance characteristics including mechanical strength, durability, corrosion resistance and flame retardancy.
Epoxy coating: Epoxy coating is available for our aluminium products. This 75 to 125 microns layer of epoxy coating is applied to the product for the use in corrosive outdoor applications or where the potential of galvanic corrosion exists between the cable cleat and the support structure. This protective layer has excellent adhesion, and chip and chemical resistance.
Stainless Steel: The CMP Stainless Steel ranges of cable cleats are manufactured with type 316L Stainless Steel. Type 316L is more resistant to corrosion and pitting than more conventional Stainless Steels, and it also exhibits higher creep resistance as well as excellent tensile strength and rupture resistance at high temperatures.
