IMC (Intermediate Metal Conduit) is a galvanized steel conduit that is used for electrical wiring in residential, commercial and industrial buildings. It is similar to EMT (Electrical Metallic Tubing) in many ways, but it is heavier and more durable.EMT is also a type of conduit that is used for electrical wiring, but it is made of a thinner and more flexible material. It is often used for exposed wiring in commercial and industrial buildings, and it is also used in residential wiring where flexibility is needed.Both IMC and EMT are approved for use by the National Electric Code (NEC) and both types of conduit provide a good level of protection for electrical wiring. However, IMC is stronger and more durable, while EMT is more flexible and easier to work with.
