Copper wires and the differences can be tricky to differentiate from the various types that can be found. Insulated Cable is a common heavier copper wire that is used for heavier electrical connections like from a home or building. Usually no thicker than a finger, the Insulated Cable will have strands of copper bare bright wire inside which is gathered and covered by a single layer of insulation. The insulation can be removed to make more money on the copper wire, however we only suggest doing that if you have a large quantity of the material, otherwise you may lose too much weight by stripping the Insulated Cable.
