What is the Difference between Magnet Wire and Enameled Wire?
- By : Insulation Materials
What is the difference between magnet wire and enameled wire? Enameled wire belongs to a category of electromagnetic wire, generally refers to the insulated wire used to manufacture coils or windings in electrical insulations products. Also known as winding wire.
Magnet wire must meet the requirements of various uses and manufacturing processes. The former includes its shape, specifications, ability to work at high temperatures for short and long periods of time, as well as withstanding strong vibrations and centrifugal forces at high speeds in certain occasions, corona resistance and breakdown at high voltages, and chemical resistance under special atmosphere Corrosion, etc. The latter includes the requirements of being subjected to stretching, bending and abrasion during winding and embedding, as well as swelling and erosion during dipping and drying.
Magnet wire can be classified according to its basic composition, conductive core and electrical insulation layer. Generally, it is divided into enameled wire, wrapped wire, enameled wound wire and inorganic insulated wire according to the insulating materials and manufacturing methods used for the electrical insulating layer.
Enameled wire The conductor is coated with the corresponding lacquer solution, and then made by solvent evaporation and curing and cooling of the lacquer film. Enameled wire can be divided into polyester enameled wire, polyesterimine enameled wire, polyamideimine enameled wire, polyimide enameled wire, polyesterimide / polyamideimide enameled wire, corona-resistant enameled wire, and oily Paint, acetal paint, polyurethane enameled wire, etc. Sometimes it is also classified according to the particularity of its use, such as self-adhesive enameled wire, refrigerant-resistant enameled wire, etc.
