Enameled floral wire is a wire coated with a thin layer of insulation to prevent the wire surfaces from being in a short circuit when wound into coils. Magnetic flux is created when current flows through the coil. It is used mainly in the construction of motors, electromagnets, transformers and inductors. For ease of manufacturing inductive components like transformers and inductors, most of these wires can be soldered.
Enameled floral wires are classified by their diameter, temperature class and insulation thickness. A thicker insulation layer results in a higher breakdown voltage. Common temperature classes are 130, 155, 180 and 200
