Clean Aluminum Wire is free of any insulation, steel, or residue. This wire is often used by electricians and in commercial buildings in substitute of copper wire. It is more cost-effective and easier to get a hold of. The electrical currents are still able to travel through aluminum. Aluminum wire will be a silver color and can be confused with tin-coated copper. When you have wire, be sure to check the middle to ensure you are not mixing it with copper wire. Rockaway Recycling doesn’t suggest stripping the aluminum wire if you have less than a few hundred pounds because it will not yield too much more at the scales. When you are removing the insulation you are removing weight from the material. Be sure to check the middle of the aluminum wire with a magnet, because sometimes there can be a steel rod going through the middle If that is the case, we have to deduct the price.
