Applications and Conductor Type of Enameled Wire


Xinyu Electrical is an integrated industrial and trade enterprise specialized in enameled wire with UL certification. Enamel wire contains a thin layer of insulation or enamel, made out of either a thin varnish or a polyester or fiberglass yarn. The enameled wire is typically enameled copper wire or enameled aluminum wire.


Used in production of light weight, relatively high conductivity, heat resistance and good windings, especially the transmission of high frequency signal windings;

Used in magnet wires of high-frequency voltage devices, common transformer, inductance coils, electromotors, household electrical and micro-motors;

Used in electrical tools, ballasts, automotive electronics, refrigerator and air conditioner compress or motors. Such as television sets, electric stove, microwave ovens etc.

Used in electrical appliances, communication tools, instruments, transformers, generators,electromotors, and so on.

Conductor Type

Most enamel wire will be enameled copper wire, but some applications will use aluminum wire, such as large transformers and loudspeaker coils.

Aluminum wire requires a cross section that is 1.6 times larger for it to create the same current as a copper wire because aluminum has lower conductivity. This makes aluminum wire more cumbersome than copper wire simply because of how much more wire is required to achieve similar ratings.

Still, enameled aluminum wire does have the advantage of being less susceptible to corrosion than enameled copper wire. Enameled aluminum wire from xinyu-enameledwire can meets your requirements.
