Rectangular Enameled Wire And CCA Wire

  • CCA wire possesses the characteristics of both Copper wire and Aluminium wire: low density from Aluminium wire and good conductor from copper wire. CCA wire is widely used in different electrical applications requiring the conductivity of copper while retaining much of the weight advantages of Aluminium.

    Properties of Copper Clad Aluminum Wires

    1.DC resistivity: DC resistivity of Copper Clad Aluminium Wire is 1.5 2.times than that of pure copper wire

    3.Light Weight: Weight percentage between CCA wire and pure copper wire is 37% to 40%.

    4.Low Cost: Under the circumstance of the same weight and wire size, CCA wire length is 2.5 to 2.7 times more that pure copper wire, which 5.lowers the production cost.

    6.Environmental Friendly: CCA wire saves the copper resources and 7.the production process is nonpolluting.

    8.Wide Range of Usage: High-frequency signal cables, Standard wire, Conductor of electric power cable , Conductor of automotive cable, Building distribution wire, Fuse , Radio frequency shielding, Conductor of control cable, Cotton covered wire busbar and many other products.



    1.Compared to copper conductors:

    2.Higher Flexibility due to lower elastic modulus

    3.63% material weight reduction due to lower specific gravity of CCA 4.over regular copper

    5.Compared to aluminum conductors:

    6.Better corrosion resistance than aluminum due to copper layer

    7.Lower resistance due to high electric conductivity of copper

    8.Better Solderability

    9.Higher strength than aluminum


    Next time, we will introduce rectangular enameled wire. Remember to watch.
