Price (Per FT.)
Solid and stranded (classes AA and A) bare copper are suitable for overhead transmission and distribution applications. Stranded conductor of greater flexibility (classes B and C) are suitable for uninsulated hook up, jumpers, and grounds in electrical construction. Soft Drawn copper is unilay construction.

Bare copper, solid or stranded. Available in tempers hard, medium-hard, or soft. Stranded conductors are concentrically stranded in hard and medium-hard tempers and are Combination Unilay stranded in the soft-drawn temper.
Bare Copper wire
The bare copper wire is quite a common name in the field of power transmission and distribution. This wire can be in both stranded and solid copper conductor of class AA and A. Bare copper wire has made the technological world develop day by day due to its profound reliability and durability.
• B-2 medium-hard copper conductor
• B-3 soft or annealed copper conductor
• B-8 concentric-lay-stranded, medium-hard or soft copper conductor
• B-33 tinned copper conductors
• B-787 19 a wire combination of unilay-stranded copper wire
This is quite a unique electrical cable sign its design is different from other forms of electrical cables. It is made from bare copper wire which may be solid or stranded. The copper conductor transmits current from one point to another. The stranding enables it to current large amounts of electric current and also enhances its flex life. The copper conductor is also available in hard tempers, slightly hard and soft. When it comes to the stranded conductors they are concentrically stranded into hard or slightly hard tempers and are put together with unilay strands within the soft-drawn temper.
The conductor is also resistant to various harsh environmental conditions including moisture, corrosion, abrasion, impact and other harmful solvents.
Industrial ratings and approvals
This indicates that the copper wire is genuine and safe for use. The bare copper wire has the following industrial ratings and approvals;
• NEC (National Electric Code)
It can be used in various overhead power transmission and distribution applications. In case of stranded conductors it can be used in uninsulated hook up, jumpers and grounding in electrical constructions.
