Tinned Copper (Solid or Stranded)
Solid soft tinned copper wires are used primarily in applications involving current flow, corrosion resistance, or the need to solder the wire to some component. The addition of a tin coating facilitates the soldering process with only a small price differential over bare copper. A tin coating is also desirable in applications where operating temperatures exceed 100° C up to 150° C. At such temperatures the corrosion resistance of bare copper declines and the tin coating acts to protect the surface of the bare copper.
Single-strand conductors can be tin coated as soft, medium hard or hard wire. The standard minimum thickness of tin coating is 40 micro-inches.
The tin coating is applied in accordance with ASTM B33-81. Bare conductor prior to coating will meet ASTM B1-81, B2-82, or B3-74.
