Magnet wire, also known as winding wire or enameled wire, is a copper or aluminum wire coated with a thin insulation and is a principal component of transformers, inductors, motors, and other electrical devices.
The enamel is typically a polymer film that provides a tough continuous layer of insulation. Resins used in the development of enamels are designed with wire properties in mind like abrasion resistance, solderability, and thermal rating. Enameled wires are engineered to meet temperature classes from 105 to 240°C guaranteeing service life at rated temperature for 20,000 hours.
Self-supporting coils use magnet wire with an outermost thermoplastic layer that bonds coil layers together when heated or solvent activated.
