Copper Wire

Copper Forms

Copper Wire

Copper wire offers excellent thermal and electrical conductivity which is why it is the product of choice for the electrical market sector. The versatility of using copper in wire form cannot be understated. The alloy provides good formability and rigidity, and the corrosion resistance is superior when compared to other alloys. Creep resistance is also impressive, while overall tensile strength is also good. Our copper wire products are also non-magnetic and non-sparking. Our stock range is available in a broad range of material grades and sizes to suit your engineering requirements.

Use in Electronics

Copper is an electrical conductor, and therefore our wire products are commonly used in electrical applications. Copper wire resistance to electricity is low, and there is little energy loss when passing a current through it. While aluminium tends to be the commercial choice for overhead wiring due to the alloys lower density, copper is the material of choice where size rather than weight is a more critical consideration. Applications of copper wire include underground wiring systems, looms, electrical circuitry and electrical equipment. Market sectors include power generation, transmission systems, telecommunications and power distribution.

We stock Copper Wire in a variety of grades.
