Copper-Braided-WireTinned Copper Flat Braids

 

General Specifications: A specific number of ends of tinned copper wire, braided with a specific number of carriers (strands) which is subsequently mill-rolled for specific width and thickness.

 

General Uses: A flat braid has a specific current-carrying capacity. High currents are easily carried at low voltages. Typically used as a flexible ground strap where flexibility, strange configurations and solderability are of prime importance.
