Aluminum Electrical Wire
Aluminum Electrical Wire Recycling
The less popular alternative to copper wire, aluminum electrical wiring was used as a more cost effective option for residential and commercial electrical wiring in the late 1960s.
In electrical application, most commonly found in circuitry of older homes and buildings, aluminum wire uses more material than copper wire, with more left over for scrap.
Aluminum wire, when met with faulty connections, yields a higher risk of electrical fire than copper wire, which lead to a rise in removal and replacement of aluminum wire materials in both residential and commercial properties.
