Metal that is often used to insulate wires that conduct electricity?

Copper is often used as a material for the wire itself, but I don't think you would ever use a metal to insulate a wire. Metals all conduct electricity, meaning using them as insulators for anything electrical would be a very bad idea. The most common material used to insulate electrical wires is PVC (polyvinyl chloride).
