Before retiring, we used "Double Formvar" varnish coated magnet wire. This wire is rated for pretty high temperatures. That stuff was really hard to get off the copper wire. About all that worked very well was those commercial duty $1500 wire strippers.
I think that is the coating that we get today on the better quality magnet wire. The stuff I have definitely says something about being double coated; probably explains why it's such a pain to remove.
