- Jan 26, 2018 -

Copper clad aluminum wire refers to the aluminum conductor as the main body, a percentage of copper plating layer outside the wire, it can be used as a coaxial cable conductor and electrical equipment, wire and cable conductor in such as home audio cables.

Because the main function of the wire is to transmit the signal, the current flowing through it is small.

However, because the conductivity of the aluminum only two-thirds of copper, so the standard provisions of the state who used to transmit power cable must be in not metallized or metallized annealing copper as a conductor, is forbidden to use aluminium wire conductors.
