To have proper conduction of electricity, it is very important to have proper materials that will help in this conduction process. Generally conductors of electric power are made of: aluminum, copper and steel or at times a combination of all three metals.
In case of conductivity factor, copper rates as the topmost followed by aluminum and steel in the second and third positions.
There are various formats in which these conductors are to be found:
- These come in both stranded and segmented hollow copper conductor format
- They also come copperweld copper
- It also includes steel core aluminum format. You can also leave it in a stranded format.
- Both solid hard and stranded copper is to be found.
