SILVER PLATED COPPER WIRE - Cu/Ag

General Description

ELEKTRISOLA silver plated copper wire is composed of a copper core covered by a concentric silver plating. This material combines the advantages of copper, such as the conductivity, with the bright and shiny surface of silver. In addition, the silver coating provides high corrosion resistance. All these advantages make it the favorite choice for high frequency wire, as well as, colored textile wire.
Silver plated copper wire is available with different plating thicknesses such as 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 g silver / kg of wire. Other platings are available upon request. Silver plated wire is available in diameters from 0.020mm to 0.500mm (AWG 52 - 24) with all insulation and self-bonding enamels.  Elektrisola also produces bare silver plated wire in the same diameter range.
