QIs this wire insulated, for example with varnish?
AHi Doug, thanks for your question. This wire is not insulated, it is used to make heating elements etc. Insulated can be found here: http://www.rapidonline.com/Cables-Connectors/Enamelled-copper-wire-62484

QHello Can I fire this to 1300 c without it becoming brittle?
AHi Jane, thanks for your question. The wire has a melting point of 1400 deg C so would more likely become soft rather than brittle.
