Description

Copper wire that has been coated or plated with a very thin layer of insulating, conducting or other protective material to achieve the specific properties of the finished product.

Properties

The copper wire can be treated to yield the desired levels of: corrosion resistance (eg tinned); electrical conductivity (eg silver plated); insulation (eg plastic coated or enamelled); or tarnish resistance (eg gold, nickel or silver plated).

Applications

Typically used in electro-magnetic compatibility (EMC), radio frequency interference (RFI) and electrical cable screening applications. Also used in the manufacture of jewellery where formability, resistance to tarnishing and a variety of colours for aesthetic purposes are required.
