Allied Wire & Cable knows electrical wire, especially MIL-Spec wire. Our stock meets and exceeds industry standards. The hook up wire passes the UL VW-1 Flame Test and is used across a broad range of industries requiring a high temp wire that can also withstand harsh environments. Because of its size, non-flammable materials, and resistance to chemicals, typical uses for the MIL-Spec wire include harness applications for the military or aerospace industries. The wire may also be used for the internal wiring of electronic equipment.
All types of the MIL Spec cable have an excellent temperature range and voltage rating. They are constructed of a choice of insulations and conductors. Gauge sizes on the wire even run as small as 32. The wires are stocked in a variety of sizes and weights.
Our value added services are available for all three types of the military wire. The items may be striped, twisted, or cut and stripped for your convenience. Please contact an Allied Wire representative to help with your MIL-Spec wire customization questions.
