UL Standards and Ratings
Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Inc. is the chartered institute established to maintain and operate laboratories for the examination and testing of devices, systems, and materials. This is in order to determine their affinity to cause hazards to life and property. UL also defines and publishes standards, classifications, and specifications for materials, devices, products, equipment, constructions, methods, and systems affecting such threats.
Why PVC Wire?
PVC is regularly used because of its excellent covering properties and high corrosion resistance. This makes it best suited for low and medium-voltage cables with low-frequency requirements. Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) insulated and sheathed cables are ideal for use in a wide variety of applications from fixed wiring to flexible installations. They are available in a number of sizes, colors, and conductor materials. PVC's properties make it suitable for applications where the cables risk exposure to extremely high or low temperatures and provide protection against degradation.
Common applications for PVC hook-up wire include power generators, turbines, transformers, switchboards, wire and cable assemblies, electric panels, and electronic circuits. Many of our PVC hook-up wires are also RoHS Compliant and AWM approved. View individual part number pages for specific approvals.
Our UL1007/UL1569 Wire is one of our most popular PVC wires. This wire is resistant to water, oil, acids, solvents, and fungus. It also provides protection against abrasion. Its construction allows for accessible stripping and cutting due to uniform insulation thickness. It also meets CSA TR-64 specs. We offer our PVC hook-up wire in multiple packaging options, including custom reels, bulk drums, and custom lengths.
We also offer PVC wire with a wide variety of materials, including EPDM, Neoprene, Kynar & ETFE, PTFE, and more. You can view our full selection of Hook-Up and Lead wire here. For more information, read our Hook-Up Wire FAQs or contact us today.
