Is copper clad aluminum wire good?

The copper clad aluminum wire adopts advanced coating and welding manufacturing technology to concentrically wrap high-quality copper tape on the outer surface of core wires such as aluminum rods or steel wires, and form a strong interatomic metallurgy between the copper layer and the core wire.
The two different metal materials are combined into an inseparable whole, which can be drawn and annealed like a single metal wire. During the drawing process, the diameter of copper and aluminum are reduced in the same proportion, and the volume ratio of the copper layer remains relatively constant.
Because high-frequency signals have the characteristics of “skin effect”, copper-clad aluminum wires and copper-clad steel wires have the same conductivity as pure copper wires when transmitting high-frequency signals (greater than 5MHz).
Unique composite performance: Copper-clad aluminum wire has both the electrical conductivity of copper and the composite characteristics of low density of aluminum; while copper-clad steel wire combines the electrical conductivity of copper with the high strength of steel. Tin-plated copper-clad steel wire exerts the solderability and sulfidation resistance of tin; silver-plated copper-clad steel wire improves electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, corrosion resistance and oxidation resistance. So it has a wide range of applications.

The structure of copper clad aluminum wire
Copper-clad aluminum is a bimetallic wire composed of an aluminum core wire and a copper layer tightly covering it. This allows the characteristics of two metal materials to be played on one wire, which makes the excellent conductivity of copper and the weight of aluminum The combination of light characteristics overcomes the shortcomings of aluminum wires and forms a copper-clad aluminum wire with good electrical conductivity, low density, softness, corrosion resistance, easy welding, and low price. So as to develop into a new metal conductive material.
