In the current developing world the need for copper wires that can transmit power over long distances is on the rise. They are commonly used in cities. There are various types of bare copper wire you might come across in the market; it is advisable to choose one that matches your needs. They include;

• Bare copper wire solid round
• Bare copper wire
• Bare tinned copper wire
• Stranded Bare Copper Conductors
• Bare Wire: 7-Wire Concentric lay


They have a simple but unique design whereby they have a bare copper conductor which may be solid or stranded which is class A and AA respectively. The stranding is in accordance to ASTM B-3 and B-8 for concentric lay strands. It is also available in hard tempers, slightly hard or soft. The stranded conductors are concentrically stranded in rope lay into hard or slightly hard tempers and are cabled together in unilay strands inside the soft-drawn temper.

When we talk of bare tinned copper wire it is mainly copper that has been added a thin layer of tin to it. It is mostly used in insulators for overhead transmission and grounding of electric current. The copper wire is relatively stranded to enhance its flexibility. The copper conductor can be available in soft, medium hard or even uncoated hard copper conductor. The concentric lay wire cable has unsurpassed flexibility due to its amazing flexibility.


• B-2 Medium-Hard Copper conductor
• B-3 Soft or Annealed Copper conductor
• B-8 Concentric-Lay-Stranded Hard, Medium-Hard or Soft Copper Conductor.
• B-33 Tinned Conductors
• B-787 19 Wire Combined with Unilay-Stranded Soft copper wire.


They are mainly used in overhead power transmission applications. It can also be used in uninsulated hookers, jumpers and grounding for electrical construction. They are best suited for outdoor applications.
