Copper is an essential component of cables and wires. Since the price is subject to daily fluctuations, the base price for standard cables is usually a copper price of 150 EUR / 100 kg. When invoicing, the difference between the copper base and the current daily exchange rate is added as a copper surcharge.
The copper surcharge is calculated as following:
Copper weight in kg/km x (DEL + 1%) – Copper base : 100
DEL (German electrolytic copper for conducting matters):
