This strong and beautiful copper wire is “enameled”. This means it’s coated with a very thin layer of either polyurethane or polyester. This makes the wire more resistant to corrosion and oxidation, so it keeps its shine for longer. It comes in a range of thicknesses to suit your broom-making needs.
Weight: The weight of the actual wire is about 100g. Together with the spool it’s 113 grams.
Description: Copper wire enameled with either polyurethane or polyester, with good corrosion resistance and durability.
Name: QA-1/155 straight welding-type enameled round copper wire.
Package contents: wire on a spool.
Diameters to choose from (note that choosing “color” in our store really means choosing the wire’s diameter):
WHAT IS AWG?
American Wire Gauge (AWG), (also known as the Brown & Sharpe wire gauge), is a standardized wire gauge system used since 1857, mainly in North America, for the diameters of round, solid, nonferrous wire. Higher gauge numbers mean smaller wire diameters. Other gauging systems include British Standard Wire Gauge (SWG), and IEC 60228, the metric wire-size standard used in most parts of the world.
