Bare Copper Wire

Bare Copper Wire | Remington Industries

Our bare copper wire offers excellent electrical conductivity for industrial applications, transportation projects, electrical transmission work, and more. This wire meets the ASTM B3 standards for annealed copper and complies with RoHS and RoHS 2 directives.

What is Bare Copper Wire?

Bare copper wire is a single-strand wire with no coating. Copper is the second-best conductor of electricity (after silver) and this type of wire is available in either solid or stranded construction.


Bare Copper Wire Applications

Bare copper wire has many uses; here is a list of the most common applications of bare copper wire:

Our customers have also used it to suspend parts in an electroplating tank, for stained glass projects, and for developmental experimentation with high-frequency radio antennas!


Benefits of Bare Copper Wire

Remember these benefits when considering bare copper wire for your next project:


Why Use Bare Copper Wire for Grounding?

In many cases, bare copper wire is the first choice for electrical grounding. This is due to a range of benefits, including very high conductivity, flexibility, and heat resistance. For grounding wire, you’re in the right place.


What is the Purpose of a Grounding Wire?

Electrical grounding is extremely important for safety, whether your project is residential or industrial. Grounding allows excess electricity to be directed back towards the earth to prevent potentially fatal electric shocks. Copper grounding wire is an excellent choice for electrical appliance safety.


Does Grounding Wire Need to be Insulated?

No! In fact, bare copper wire is the most common type of wire used for this purpose. Grounding wire must be highly conductive to maximize the amount of electrical leakage that can be directed back to the ground and ensure the safe use of electrical appliances and equipment. Therefore, bare wire makes excellent grounding wire. If you’re looking for copper grounding wire, we have the high-quality solution you need.

Bare Copper Wire for Jewelry Making

Remington Industries offers a wide selection of bare copper wire, including wire that can be used in jewelry making. Our 24-gauge bare copper wire, for instance, is thin enough to fit through most gemstone beads. Bare wire also makes a durable base for wire-wrapped hoops, handmade chains and more.


Bare Copper Wire for Stained-Glass Projects

Some of our artistic customers also use our bare copper wire to make beautiful stained-glass pieces. Bare copper wire offers the flexibility needed to create intricate artwork. 14-22 AWG bare copper or tinned copper wire are great for this kind of project.


Versatile Bare Copper Wire at Competitive Prices

In addition to meeting key standards and ratings, all our bare copper wire products are designed to serve a variety of needs at great prices. Here’s what our customers have to say:

-         “I use a lot of wire to reinforce many of my stained-glass projects. The price here is better than buying from a stained glass supplier,” reads a review left by Cheryl on our 16 gauge bare copper wire.

-         “This is my third purchase since discovering Remington Industries. I do developmental experimentation with High-Frequency Radio Antennas. Using both stainless steel and copper wire products. All from Remington Industries. There, when I needed them!” wrote Thomas on the 20 gauge bare copper wire product page.
