Irradiated PVC Hook Up Wire
Irradiated Wire is a type of PVC hook up wire that has a solder iron resistant insulation. It comes in 3 different UL styles listed below which each carry different voltage ratings and insulation thicknesses. We offer different colors and gauges in each option along with 3 different spool sizes.
Our Irradiated PVC wire comes in UL1429, UL1430 and UL1431.
Irradiated PVC Hook up wire is highly used in the manufacturing of wire harnesses and assemblies involving solder. Irradiated hook up wire resists the strong heat of a solder gun. Standard PVC wire melts if the solder iron is touching the wire for too long.
We sell irradiated hook up wire in UL1429, UL1430 and UL1431 which each have slightly different characteristics seen to the left. We manufacturer many different wire assemblies using UL1429 wire. It's easy to work with due to the tough insulation which allows it to hold its place and at the same time it maintains flexibility.
Other versions of 300 and 600 volt PVC wire include UL1007 wire and UL1015 wire. They also come in tinned copper but the PVC insulation on those UL styles is not irradiated.
Teflon wire is a high temperature wire reaching a temperature rating of 200°C. It has silver plated copper strands instead of tinned copper or bare copper on the PVC lead wire.
