Magnet wire is copper wire with a thin layer of insulation, and is used in a variety of applications including transformers, wound coils, motors, solenoids, and instruments. Raw copper is drawn to meet specific size requirements based on the National Electrical Manufacturer's Association (NEMA) standards. This magnet wire meets the NEMA MW-79-C standard for operating temperature (155°C/311°F) and insulation makeup. The insulation is made from modified Polyurethane, and protects the coiled wire from short-circuiting.

    Remington Industries, and Elektrisola coil wire in both 42 and 43 AWG gauge, have proven for many years to be my number one choices for the materials I require for building and offering superb passive guitar and bass pickups. Simply the best for quality, performance, and price.

    Remington Rocks!

    Posted by Ryan on May 22nd 2018

    This magnet wire is excellent quality -- the spools are consistently the correct weight, the wire meets the criteria listed, and the insulation is durable and easily solderable.

    Remington Industries as a company has always been a pleasure to work with. They are fast to ship, offer a good price on a quality product, and their customer service is top notch.

    After ording quite few of these spools I can say the wire is consistently good, and it always ships fast with excellent packing. Remington Industries has been a real pleasure to deal with!
