English term or phrase: disassemble
Copper electric wire recycling
A used copper electric wire is disassembled and separated into coating materials such as plastic and copper.
Copper is an excellent metal for recycling and can be used numerous times as a conductor for electric wires.

Can this disassembel be changed to dismantled?

Thank you for your kind help.

strip and separate
Explanation:
I think that both of your alternatives are wrong. Neither dismantle nor disassemble is appropriate for stripping the insulation from electric cable and separating out the copper wire.

Note wires are metal, when wires have been twisted and coated and possibly several twisted and coated wires run alongside each other in an outer insulation material, the result is a cable.
