Various Uses of Aluminum Wire

Aluminum wire has found use in communications, networking, medical science fields and even in arts and crafts for its inexpensive, flexibleand highly conductive properties.
Ethernet connections such as those found between LANs and WANs make use of aluminum wire to transmit information between computers. So whether it’s a retractable Ethernet cord you use while traveling, or even the coaxial connections hooked into the back of your cable modem, aluminum wire is the main component of many of the data transfer cables you make use of daily!

Many coils, power cables and antennas used in the communications industry make use of aluminum wire as well. By mixing aluminum and copper, the resultant alloy is a cheap but even better conductor that makes up most of the specialty wire and cable used in the communications field. Plain aluminum wire is also the primary wire used by public and commercial broadcasting companies, and is an effective wire to use for private and emergency networks.

Even the medical field makes use of the flexible and conductive nature of aluminum wire as many of the machines used in ultrasonography rely on this specialty wire and cable to transfer information and electricity throughout the machine.

Aluminum wire also finds uses in arts and crafts where it is known as armature wire. As a cheap and flexible wire, armature wire is an affomer clay creations.
