FAQ; Are there any chemicals which can be used to strip enamel from copper wire?

Answer; we think that the only chemicals which work are rather dangerous. We have started to use self-fluxing wire which does not require the enamel to be removed; you simply apply a hot iron and the coating disappears. You can obtain this type of wire, and many other “speciality” wires from the Scientific Wire Company in London, which also trades as the Trade Wires company
