Nicopress Ferrule Tin Plated Copper - for Stainless Steel Wire Ropes
The Nicopress® ferrules that we supply are made from solid copper plated with either zinc or tin. For stainless steel wire ropes it is best to choose the tin-plated ones but for galvanised wire rope choose the zinc-plated ferrules. Nicopress® ferrules can be distinguished from British Standard or DIN ferrules by their shape which slightly separates the two wires. Nicopress® ferrules are not designed for fibre-core cables. Tip: Using the Nicopress® system is very satisfying but there is a bit of craft and skill involved. We would recommend that you practise on one or two ferrules and a scrap of wire before undertaking your project.
