Hello Martin,

We note that 2014 Fisk Alloy, Inc. manufactures this product in the USA. See for information on C18661 Copper-Magnesium (CMG1) Alloy Wire. Because this alloy can be manufactured by Fisk in three different tempers, {Half-Hard (H02) Hard (H04) and Spring (H08)} and because it is a high strength alloy, we recommend you discuss this alloy in detail with your machinery suppliers. (Select a number of them so you get the best possible information.) Our concerns include tensile strength and spring back. It is possible you may need a planetary machine like a tubular strander plus perhaps up to three closing dies in a row to lock the strand before releasing conductor tension after the pull-out capstan.

This is essentially all the information we have. Please be very cautious with your machinery selection.
