Birch copper wire is considered the third most valuable grade of copper. It consists of miscellaneous, unalloyed pipe, wire, and other solids with any solder, paint, and coating. Additionally, its minimum copper content is 94-96%. To qualify for this grade, the wire must be bare (without insulation) and thinner than a 16th of an inch in diameter. The copper ends and fittings are generally accepted at dealerships. Oxidation of some wire, pipe, or tubing is allowed but cannot be excessive.

Where do we find BIRCH Copper Wire?

Copper wire is used in electrical appliances like electric cookers, washing machines, televisions, refrigerators, old telephones, and lighting wiring.  Ceiling fans, standing fans, and electrical appliances with a motor usually have quite a lot of copper wire. If we dismantle all these electrical appliances, we can find copper wires. Almost every Electrical Appliance has Insulated Copper Wires. Birch copper wire can be identified by its slight dirty appearance. Birch is an enameled wire, dirty copper, copper with a small amount of brass, plating copper, etc. It has a minimum copper content of 94-96%.  Thus it is considered as No.2 Copper Wire.
