PTFE coated hook-up and lead wire is designed to operate in extreme conditions. Allied Wire and Cable stocks non-stick PTFE Coated Hook-Up Wire, such as NEMA HP3 MIL-W-16878/4, MIL-W-16878/5, and MIL-W-16878/6, that can withstand high temperatures, high frequencies, and other hindrances. These styles of PTFE wire exhibit lasting endurance even in the toughest conditions.
PTFE insulation for hook up and lead wire has many advantages. In addition to its reliability, the insulation exhibits exceptional resistance to ultra-violet radiation, stress, chemicals, and mold growth. It is even non-toxic and biocompatible. PTFE coated wire is suitable for a wide frequency range and has a superb flex-life. The insulation on the lead wire also allows for savings in both space and weight, as compared to other insulation types used with hook up and lead wire. PTFE wire is even easy to install.
