Wire Specification

SuperPower is now routinely manufacturing 2G HTS wire and is offering long lengths of robust, high-performance wire for sale in several configurations, including variations of width, substrate thickness, and copper stabilizer.

Our standard configurations include
  • SCSxx50 (Surround Copper Stabilizer, 50 micron substrate)
    • Wire widths: 2 mm, 3 mm, 4 mm, 6 mm and 12 mm
  • SFxx50 (Stabilizer Free, 50 micron substrate)
    • Wire widths: 2 mm, 3 mm, 4 mm, 6 mm and 12 mm
  • SF12100 (Stabilizer Free, 12 mm wire width, 100 micron substrate)
  • Now available - bonded conductor 
  • Available Q1 2015 - 30 micron substrate material
Other custom configurations are available on request.
Wire variations
  • Cable Formulation (CF) wire, utilizes standard wire chemistries that exhibit best performance at around 77K, the liquid nitrogen temperature regime, and in very low magnetic fields for cable and other similar applications.
  • Advanced Pinning (AP) wire exhibits superior performance at a range of temperatures from 77K to as low as 4K and well suited for in-magnetic-field applications such as motors, generators and other high-field magnetics.
  • Fault Current Limiter (FCL) wire utilizes the CF chemistry and begins with a thicker (100 micron), highly resistive Hastelloy® substrate suitable for these grid protection devices. This application, which does not call for any copper stabilizer, can also benefit from the option to vary the thickness of the silver cap layer.
