Results 1 - 16 of 16
A Wire is a single strand of metal that conducts electricity and transmit telecommunication signals. The two main types of wires are stranded or solid wires. A stranded wire is produced by twisting together many thin wires whereas a solid wire is a single thick strand of wire. A stranded wire has a longer service life when compared to a solid wire because of its flexibility but solid wires are perfect for use in circuits that have a higher frequency.
Wires are used for various applications besides carrying electricity and telecommunication signals. They are also used to bear mechanical loads, fencing, jewelry and clothing and are also used in industrial and automotive parts. Wires are manufactured with different metals based on the application for which they would be used such as platinum, iron, silver, copper, aluminum and gold and alloys like brass and bronze. All these metals are suitable for manufacturing wires because they are ductile.
Copper is one of the prime metals with which wire is manufactured and copper wires are plated with other metals like nickel, silver or tin. This is done to provide lubrication or to enable the wire to handle different temperatures. The best places in UAE to find manufacturers of wire are Al Aweer and Dubai Industrial City in Dubai and SAIF zone in Sharjah.
