Silver Plated Copper Wire Braids
Silver plated copper wire from Arcor Electronics is composed of a copper core, covered by concentric silver plating. This construction combines the benefits of using copper wire – namely the conductivity – with the high corrosion resistance that comes from silver plating.
Features of Silver Plated Copper Braids
Applications of silver plated wires include colored wires, textile wires, micro cables, and more. Some of the most sought-after features of silver-plated copper wire include:
- High level of conductivity
- Improved heat resistance
- Resistant to corrosion
- Shiny, bright surface
When to Use Silver Plated Copper Wire
Arcor’s tubular silver plated copper wire is identical to braids outlined in MIL SPEC QQ_B-575(REV.), except that the individual wires are plated with silver, conforming to ASTM B298 standard—40 microinches minimum of silver plating. These wires are excellent for use when exceeding 200 degrees Celsius or where special resistance to corrosion is required.
We offer a wide variety of sizes for this type of wire, a range of wires per strand, and up to 864 wires total.
