Pure electrolytic copper wire uniformly electroplated with nickel. This wire is used for inner-lead part in Lead-in-Wires of incandescent bulbs, fluorescent tube, halogen, HID, automotive, and other lamps. It is also used in cable industry for automotive and other electronics applications.
|Cu core||99.90 min||0.10 max|
|Nickel layer||High purity Nickel|
Thickness of Nickel layer
2-4% by weight or minimum of 2% by weight in thickness. Higher Nickel plating thickness (like 4% or 8%) can be manufactured as per customer requirement. The nickel coating has uniform adhesion over the full length of the copper core wire.
|Diameter of wire||Thickness of Nickel plating||Application|
|mm||% by weight|
|0.20 - 0.60||2.0 - 4.0||For Lead-in-Wires / Cables|
|0.70 - 0.90||2.0 - 3.0||For Lead-in-Wires|
|0.80 - 1.50||8.0 - 12.0||For redraw|
|Wire Type||Tensile strength (N/mm²)||Elongation
% at L0=100 mm
|Annealed (soft)||200||300||≥ 20|
|As drawn||350||500||≤ 5|
|Size in mm||0.2 - 0.3||0.4 - 0.9||1.0 - 2.0|
The ovality (the difference between the largest and smallest diameter in a section) is less than half the tolerance in diameter.
Stranded wires are also available. Please contact JLC for more information.
In standard DIN spools or corrugated drums / barrels (14" outer dia x 10" height)
|Diameter of wire||Recommneded
|Weight per spool|
|0.20 - 0.60||DIN 160||5 - 7|
|DIN 200||6 - 8|
|DIN 250||12 - 20|
|Corrugated Drum||12 - 20|
|0.70 - 0.90||DIN 200||6 - 8|
|DIN 250||15 - 22|
|Corrugated Drum||15 - 25|
|0.8 - 1.50||DIN 355||50 - 75|
Each spool is individually shrink wrapped and put in carboard box for maximum protection against oxidation. It is advisable to use the wire within six months from the date of manufacturing for best performance.
