Film and fabric insulated aluminum magnet conductors in round and shaped sections have been developed for commercial application. The physical characteristics of the constructions provide magnet wires capable of being processed in existing equipment. Chemical, electrical, and thermal characteristics of the magnet wires predict successful usage of these wires in high reliability products. Termination methods and techniques have been developed which provide versatility of processing and reliability of performance. Aluminum magnet wire can offer engineering advantages when units are specifically designed for this type wire.
