Hydro battery cables are extruded solid aluminium rods that offer significant advantages in material, weight, and cost for your car’s electrical system.
As a standard, the cables are HYCOT® coated with either polyamide (PA) or polyethylene (PE/XPE) coatings and can be delivered in round, flat or oval shapes.
Our aluminium battery cables can be applied in electric, hybrid and fossil-fuel driven cars.
Some vehicle designs today, especially for hybrid models, place the battery away from the engine. This fosters and increases the weight and cost-saving potential that aluminium cables provide.
Excellent energy absorption is one of the properties that carmakers, and insurance companies, value in Hydro’s range of aluminium specifically designed for cars and the automotive industry. Aluminium from Hydro can make your vehicles safer.
Using aluminium for a car’s structure can lessen weight by as much as 30% compared to steel. As aluminium is fully recyclable, a large percentage of the car of the future could be made from 100% recycled aluminium, a truly sustainable vehicle.
Hydro designs and manufactures aluminium components for all passenger cars and commercial vehicles.
