Nickel Plated Copper Wires are composed by providing concentric nickel plating over bare copper conductor. This material enhances the thermal & heat-resisting properties of copper with the bright & shiny surface of the nickel. In addition, the nickel coating also shows excellent corrosion resistance characteristics. Magnetic nickel plating over copper reduces high-frequency loss in HF application. MATPLAT does not use any brighteners (organic or metallic) to ensure the highest purity deposit available.

From the above excellent characteristics this conductor is a favorable choice for wires used in high-temperature wires & cables. We are manufacturing Nickel-plated copper wires with complying international standard ASTM B355 & also, customized wires are available on special request.
