The Neoprene Insulation in these Belden Hook-Up Wires offers many excellent characteristics that are essential to a variety of applications. This insulation can retain its flexibility at high and low temperatures without breaking down, and can also remain chemically stable in harsh environments. Famous for its use in wetsuits, Neoprene is an excellent insulator for cold temperatures both in the air and in the water.
Neoprene insulation may be used in hazardous locations. The insulation is also being used in explosion-proof motors recognized by UL. 12 AWG and smaller sizes are dual labeled UL and CSA. Neoprene insulation possesses good heat aging characteristics and is also a low-cost motor lead wire.
