How Many Types of Copper Wire Are There?

With thousands of types of different wires it is tough to really pinpoint all of them down, but here are a few types that you can look for:

Make sure you always check with your scrap yards so you can figure out the different types of copper wire and cables that there are. You may want to send them a picture so you can give them a better idea as well and really be able to nail down the correct grading and pricing for your insulated copper wire and cable.

How To Prepare Your Insulated Copper Wire:

Many people think that all wire is the same…but that is like saying all beers are the same, it’s just not true. You have to sort out your different grades of wire when you have a lot of it so you will be able to really get the most bang for your buck when it comes to your insulated wire and cashing it in for scrap.

The best thing to do is always to sort by grading, but if you don’t have enough time you can sell it to your scrap yard mixed. Sometimes they will give you mixed pricing, but if they don’t, you will have to know that you will be making less money when you go to cash it in.
