3Gold (Pure)70%

Hereof, is stainless steel an insulator or a conductor?

Iron, silver, aluminum, stainless steel, and copper are all examples of metals that are good conductors. 6. Insulators A material that heat does not move through easily is an insulator. Plastic, wood, rubber, and glass are all good insulators.

Which is more conductive aluminum or steel?

Electrical Conductivity. Stainless steel is a really poor conductor compared to most metals. Aluminum is a very good conductor of electricity. Due to its high conductance, light weight, and corrosion resistance, high-voltage overhead power lines are generally made of aluminum.
