Coated Wire

A protective barrier of metal, plastic, or rubber surrounds a coat of wire – shielding it from wear, corrosion, and Mother Nature’s other harsh elements. It is used for a range of purposes – ranging from electrical wiring, plumbing, and jewelry making.

Coated wire comes in a variety of forms, each with its own set of pros and cons. The two most popular varieties are those covered in metal and plastic. Metal-coated wire is usually comprised of copper or aluminum and shielded in a thin layer of zinc, tin, or any other metal. This type of coated wire is quite sturdy and holds up well under extreme conditions. Plastic-coated wire usually consists of aluminum or copper interwoven with a slim coating of PVC or other plastic. This kind of coated wire has a greater level of flexibility than its metal counterpart and is more resistant to corrosion.

The coating on coated wire plays an important role in electrical wiring, allowing the wire to securely attach to its components while protecting it from damage. This type of wire is found in a multitude of applications due to its versatile nature and is traditionally used to join various electrical components together and form a functional circuit.

Metal or plastic pipes and tubes are often coated with a unique material known as coated wire to help ward off corrosion. This type of wire is not only utilized in plumbing – it is also frequently used by jewelry makers to assemble stunning pieces of jewelry, be it for beads or other small objects. These pieces can combine beautiful elements to create one-of-a-kind adornments.

Boasting a range of invaluable benefits, coated wire is an ideal choice for electrical projects. More supple and featuring a protective outer coating, it stands up better to damage, wear, and corrosion compared to other types of wire. However, coated wire does face some drawbacks; the coating can challenge soldering operations and increase the wire’s resistance.

When working with electrical wiring, it is essential to select the appropriate coated wire for the job. Metallic-sheathing is ideal for electrical wiring as it is exceedingly sturdy and long-lasting. For plumbing, plastic-clad wire functions well as it is more malleable and resists oxidation. If your desired outcome is the combination of ease of assembly and low resistance, then coated wire is your best option.
