GXL Automotive Primary Wire

GXL wire is a specific type of wiring that is used for automotive primary wiring. Our GXL wire has thin walls along with a single conductor to make it one of the thinner primary wiring solutions that is great for automotive applications. The bare-copper wire conductor is wrapped with cross-linked polyethylene and allows for 50 volts. Its slender proportions make it incredibly viable in engine compartments. Another great attribute for this wiring in engine compartments are its heat ratings, which is for between -51 degrees Celsius and +125 degrees Celsius. This means that the wire is great where high heat resistance is required, but also outstanding where there are very low temperatures. Our GXL wire meets SAE-J1128 specifications laid out by SAE, MS-8900 requirements for Ford and MS-8900 specifications for Chrysler. Overall, our GXL automotive primary wiring will be perfect for your automotive needs, and can be bought with colors, striping, or numbering!
