Product Overview

ERICO copper-bonded ground rods are the highest quality ground rods available today. We use a unique manufacturing process, which includes drawing the steel rod to size before the copper bonding process begins. This results in a straighter, harder steel core, making installation easier. ERICO uses a continuous electro-plating process over the steel core that results in a permanent molecular bond that provides decades of reliable performance. Our state-of-the-art ISO registered manufacturing facility provides a consistent, high-quality finished product that is used in millions of installations around the world.

  • 99.9% pure electrolytic copper coating
  • Molecular bond to nickel-sealed high strength steel core
  • Rods have a high carbon steel core and tip that provide superior strength when driving
  • Copper coating will not crack when bent or tear when driven
  • Minimum copper coating of 10 mils on rods listed to UL- 467
  • ERICO name, length, diameter and part number is roll-stamped within 12" (304,8 mm) of chamfered end
  • UL logo and control number where applicable stamped on each rod for easy inspection after installation

I am trying to make these geometric hanging planters. Is this type of copper rod able to be cut?

Asked by: kmkline22
Yes, it can be cut with a hack saw or sawzall. Generally these rods are copper clad with a steel core, not solid copper.

It was made of copper. It was 5/8in. x 8ft. And, it went into the ground. I would have given it five stars, but it was not so easy getting back out of the ground.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meets the need Solid rod meets NEC code. Drives easily with hammer drill. I drove two. Would buy again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not 5/8" Labeled 5/8" diameter with factory label. Online specifications clearly state 0.625", which is 5/8", but rod barely measures 9/16" diameter. Not really a big deal unless you drive 15 miles to get a 5/8" copper rod based on "Specifications"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stays straight for all 8 feet This is a good rod. The top maintained it's shape during the entire installation. The bar did not flex or bend. Very happy with the results.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very affordable for copper Good for getting things up to code. takes about 30 minutes to hammer in the ground.
Date published: 2016-05-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not solid copper but at the price I wouldn't expect that ... The description for the rod should read copper clad grounding rod since the rod is not solid copper. There is no information on what metal is used in the core but it's UL listed so I'm sure what ever it is up to code.
