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.

    I really like this magnet wire. It spins smoother than other brands Ive used. It lets me speed up or slow down without any problem with the feed.

    The wire is perfect for my small guitar pickup winding business. Remington’s service is fast and when I had a spool issue, they took care of it quickly.

    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.
