In order to avoid electrochemical corrosion of the end of Enameled Copper Clad Aluminum Wire, the best way is to isolate the end from the atmosphere. At present, there are mainly two ways to solve this problem:
1. Electroplating: Plating a layer of copper on the butt joint of enameled copper clad aluminum wire, but it takes too long. However, it is not a big problem to apply it in companies that produce enameled copper clad aluminum wire, because many joints can be electroplated together. The difficulty lies in the fact that copper plating on the surface of aluminum is very difficult.
2. Apply quick-drying paint of copper color: dry in less than two minutes, with appropriate colour and copper. This is very convenient for users who use enameled copper clad aluminum wire. Because the user can cut the wiring at any position, as long as the quick-drying paint is applied to the section immediately, corrosion can be avoided.
At present, enameled copper clad aluminum wire has been widely used in the cable TV industry, and enameled copper clad aluminum wire has become the standard material for coaxial cables in the United States. It is an updated product of copper conductor and has the advantages of reasonable utilization of natural resources, reduction of production cost, the convenience of engineering construction, etc. In China, with the gradual understanding and correct understanding of enameled copper clad aluminum wire, the development prospect of enameled copper clad aluminum wire will be very broad.
