Alconex Gold® Magnet Wire (220° C)

ALCONEX GOLD® is an electrical insulation film recognized by Underwriters Laboratory available in the form of a 220° C electrical insulation for medium/high voltage applications.  The ALCONEX GOLD® 220°C insulated magnet wire comes fused (or bonded) onto aluminum and copper magnet wire. This innovative insulation has allowed our customers to reduce the build on the conductor, resulting in a more efficient yet smaller coil design.
