GPT Automotive Primary Wire

GPT wire is a type of low voltage automotive primary wire. At Allied Wire & Cable, we carry GPT wire in sizes ranging from 8 AWG to 22 AWG. This wire features a stranded bare copper conductor and a PVC insulation that protects the wire from temperatures ranging from -40°C to +80°C. GPT wire is a general purpose automotive wire, as specified by SAE J-1128. It also meets the specifications to be used in Ford and Chrysler vehicles. Unlike other types of automotive primary wire, GPT is not designed to handle extended exposure to outdoor elements, so it is typically used for interior applications. Allied has multiple value-added services available for GPT automotive primary wire, including custom printing, striping, dyeing, twisting, cutting and stripping.
