Aluminum wire

What is aluminum wire?

A wire that is used because of its excellent mechanical properties and mainly because of the cost factor is an Aluminum wire. This is one of the safest wires which promise safety and hence it is used for wiring in house, power grid and aeroplanes. Although it is a poor electric conductive wire than copper, hence it is used for house wirings. They also have higher electrical resistivity and they require 56% larger cross-sectional area to carry current. They also have higher coefficient of thermal expansions. They are also a solution to fixed installations and offers simplicity for the same.

1100, 1113, 1112, and 1350 grades are most demanded aluminum wire. These wires are available in various gauge and cores. Very fine aluminum wires are light and have 2.7 gravity. For more features, electrical conductivity and configurations you can contact directly the the aluminium wire suppliers listed below.

Since they have better conductivity than copper with respect to weight ratio, Aluminum alloy wire are widely used for the purpose of wiring in power grids, local power distribution, and for airplanes which require this wire for wiring process.

One of the most interesting differences emerges is when both Aluminum fine wire and a normal copper wire is compared.

  • When cost is considered, Aluminum wires wins the race. They are much cheaper than copper just because they are not so good conductors to electricity when compared to a copper wire. It is also assumed to be a cost-effective alternative and as a result is used mainly for wiring in home. Aluminum flat wire provide fixed wirings.
  • Other difference is that when we need to communicate currents efficiently, copper wires are used. Most of the electric cables are made of copper.
  • Adding to this, you would face difficulties while working with a 5356 Aluminum wire because they are not flexible and are more labour incentive.
