Where To Buy Magnet Wire?

Magnet wire/anodized wire is an extremely durable insulated wire used primarily for high-frequency magnetic fields. It is comprised of a hollow inner core made from steel, aluminum, or any other lightweight aluminum alloys encased in a thin non-conductor layer of insulation. Copper anodized copper wire and copper enamel-coated wire are both manufactured in this manner. These wires can be wound and braided into conductors, as well as soldered into wires for mounting to equipment or in-wall electrical panels. The anodized wire has a very low resistance to static electricity and it is highly recommended for use in electrical applications, but these types of wires may not be suitable for low frequency (ELF) applications.
