ETFE is one of the most robust materials out there and that is the reason behind it being used to manufacture high-quality wires. Here are some of the major factors that contribute to the gaining popularity of ETFE wire material.
PVC wire and cable are not necessarily terms you might hear every day, but they are vital elements in the makeup of cable assemblies and other manufactured products. The usual mass of cables that manufacturers and prototype designers have to deal with is one of the main reasons why we provide neat, efficient and effective cable assemblies all over the globe!
But here, we’re going to provide some insight and information on what PVC wire and cables are, the various types and their uses. Plus much more.
But first, here’s the quick summary for you, then we’ll dive into more detail.Each Teflon wire is dual-rated for Mil-spec and UL AWM styles to well suit an individual’s specific needs. Depending on which standard you need, the cables are rated to specific voltage and temperature ranges. Sometimes, these ratings differ between the Mil-Spec and UL standards.
Stranded Hook-Up Wire, FEP
FEP wire, has good resistance to extremes of temperature, compression and repeat flexing. Suitable for use in whole sealed cooking appliances, auto headlamps, internal combustion engine and mercury switches, when shock or sharp casing edges are a “wear and tear” factor.
What Is Silicone Wire?
When it comes to wires, there are enormous varieties and choices. Especially with technological developments and other related innovations, choosing a wire can be confusing. However, when there’s a discussion about wires, Silicone wires are always one that appears.
What Is Silicone Wire? Silicone wire is a wire where silicone (a type of rubber) is used as the insulator around the wire. Silicone wire is well known for its flexibility and heat resistance and is highly recommended within extreme temperature environments. These wires usually have a temperature resistance up to + 250°C.
Many people are unaware of how silicone wire can perform better than other types of wires in some circumstances. Especially with the relatively expensive cost, silicone wire has less buying frequencies among many other wires for general purposes. However, there are many performance abilities and benefits that come with this wire. Let’s take a look.
How Silicone Wire PerformsAutomotive wire is generally coated with either general purpose thermoplastic (also called GPT or PVC) or cross-link insulation, so named because the insulation material is extruded under heat and pressure, changing the molecular structure and allowing it to withstand higher temperatures. GPT insulation is more cost-efficient, while cross-link insulation is more durable and heat resistant.
As a rule, look at how the wire is being used. Applications that are likely to face extreme high temperatures like engine compartments should use cross-link wire; general in-the-cabin applications can use GPT/PVC-insulated wire.
