Insulated Wire's description is slightly misleading, as it does, in fact, conduct to some semiconductors ( PSCN and NSCN).

Properties

SPRK

INWR has much more restricted SPRK conduction rules than most other elements, hence "insulated". There are only 5 elements which INWR conducts SPRK to/from:

INWR PSCN NSCN - INWR conducts to and from these elements

SWCH WIFI - INWR conducts to, but not from, these elements

BRAY

INWR is transparent to BRAY beams, they always go right through instead of being blocked. This allows BRAY beams to cross each other - a BRAY beam normally blocks other beams of white BRAY which cross it, unless the space where the beams would cross contains a particle that is transparent to BRAY.

Some other elements are also transparent to BRAY, such as FILT and ARAY, but most of them block BRAY.

INWR does not get sparked by any BRAY beams which pass through it (most conductors get sparked when hit by BRAY).

Uses

It can be used in electronics to allow creation of "crossings" for SPRK, because INWR does not conduct to or from most other electronic elements.

Transparency to BRAY means INWR can be used as ROM (read by ARAY) in printers to store the image, and in decoders.

Creation

It can be created only by drawing with the brush or cloning, there are no reactions which create INWR.
