    Hi there, some years ago a was repairing Sony PSP games consoles and used a very fine wire to repair damaged pcb tracks. I now have a need for this wire again but cannot recall what it was called, I seem to think it was nylar mylar or something like that. Anybody know what is is i am refering to please, it was single strand copper with very thin insulation coating which burnt away very easily with heat from soldering iron.?

    I have several rolls of it, but unfortunately they don't have any markings and the store that used to sell them in 3 packs here closed, so I don't know what company made them.

    Kynar 30 AWG wire-wrap wire is often used for repairs and modifications.

    I have some very, very thin fibre covered wire. How much do you want?
    0.1015mm (4 thou)
    E.D.R.C (Enammelled double rayon covered?)

    The fibre cover can easily be removed with a thumb nail. I have not tried to solder it yet.
    You are welcome to some.

    ...or you can use a single copper strand from a flexible cable.

    yes of course but thats not insulated which is particularly important if routing around other solder points. Thanks everyone for you responses
