What is strong yet can be handled with ease? A braided copper strip! You may have seen it, but not given it a thought. How easily copper wires and strips blend with our lives, helping us enjoy uninterrupted power supply! Yet, how easily we overlook them! Continue reading
The wonder metal copper is majorly used in the electrical wiring and cabling industry due to its many amazing features.
This metal’s atomic symbol is Cu and its atomic number is 29. It is a gorgeous reddish-gold metal with a beautiful luster. It has been in use since many centuries now, in several forms. In the modern times, copper is used for many different purposes, from wiring to plumbing. Continue reading
A range of nickel copper alloys exist. They display different characteristics. They are used differently. These alloys are also called cupro nickels.
The best known copper alloys include the ones that contain 45 per cent nickel, which are called constantan; the ones that contain 25 per cent nickel and 0.05-0.4 per cent manganese; those with 30 per cent nickel; and with 10 per cent nickel. Continue reading
Copper is a wonder metal, especially since it is full of properties that render it extremely useful for many industrial and domestic purposes. It has been in use for several centuries now, and is still going quite strong. Continue reading
Copper wire cables have widespread use, especially in the electrical industry. Due to certain striking features, this metal is one of the favorites in the electrical world. In spite of the fact that copper has competition with fiber-optics, which is found to perform better than this metal, copper has a lot of takers. Continue reading
Tin copper wire is nothing but a copper strip which has been coated with a thin layer of tin through electroplating. This tin copper wire many be made up of one tin-coated cable made from copper of or it may contain many strands of copper which have been bound together. Choosing tin copper wire over bare copper wire is something which many manufacturers of electrical appliances do and perhaps the strongest reasons for that are the anti-corrosive property and longevity of these wires. Continue reading
Ah copper! It is an attractive metal with a reddish-gold hue. It has been called the wonder metal due to its excellent properties and expansive uses in industries of all sizes and types for centuries now. Copper was discovered eons back and soon its alloys were created too, such as bronze. Copper is available in various forms, such as bars, rods, strips, etc. Continue reading
Copper wires are available in various forms; so, you can get the bare or braided copper wire and stranded copper wire. Each of these varieties will have its own pros and cons and therefore, before you buy these, you should ideally check for these advantages and drawbacks. Depending on the nature of appliances you will use these for, you should make a choice. For instance the stranded copper wire is found to be best suited for applications where you need a lot of flexibility and malleability. So, these wires are primarily used for linking up different parts of automobiles. These stranded wires are also excellent for gates which have to swing open.
Well, you need to understand what tinsel copper wire is all about. This enhanced form of winding is designed this way. You cut out several thin strands of copper wire. You get what is known as a foil kind of an appearance. The copper foil is then wound up, using a textile or a tin core. Continue reading
Copper is one of the predominant choices in the electrical industry due to its high electrical and thermal conductivity. The usage of unalloyed high purity copper helps to obtain required properties of this metal. Copper has been used in electrical wiring after the invention of the electromagnet and acts as an electrical conductor in many divisions of electrical wiring. A copper wire can be used in insulated or uninsulated form, depending on the requirement of various sectors like power transmission, telecommunications, power distribution, electronic circuitry and power generation.
