The 16 gauge copper is the softer version of the metal copper. While the melting point of copper is 1984.32 degrees F, the melting point of 16 gauge copper is 1700 degrees F. One finds the relevance of the 16 gauge copper in the "ignition coil driver" in mines.

The 16 gauge copper is designed to transmit an AC current of variable frequency into a coil, which is quite perfect for induction heating. To make the work coil, a 16 gauge is securely wound with a total of 40 turns. The coil driver was then modified to suit the requirements of the new work coil. Copper, incidentally reflects orange and red lights and absorbs other frequencies in the perceptible spectrum primarily because of its band structure.
