Copper wires refer to electrical conductors manufactured from copper, a highly conductive metal with good ductility and resistance to corrosion. These wires are used in a variety of electrical applications, such as telecommunications, power transmission, and electronics on account of their excellent electrical and thermal conductivity, malleability, and durability. These wires are available in a variety of sizes and shapes, ranging from small gauge wires used in electronics to large cables used in power transmission. Copper wires also offer various advantages, such as they possess higher conductivity, lower resistance to corrosion, and a longer lifespan, over other types of conductors.
