    PTFE INSULATED SPECIAL EQUIPMENT WIRES

    Please refer to table for commonly available sizes. Within the normal range, larger number of strands are available to improve flexibility and flex-life; 19 strands up to AWG 30, 37 strands up to AWG 20 and 60 strands for AWG 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13. In the two larger sizes AWG 6 and 8, compact 61 strands true concentric constructions (compared to Rope lay 19 x 7) are about 15% lower in OD, weight and cost, although slightly stiffer. We offer finer sizes, having thin-wall PTFE insulation, highly flexible (with flex-life) constructions using Silver Plated High Strength Copper Alloy (SPHSCA). Sizes as small as AWG 37/7/45 (0.43 mm). Even such fine sizes are 100% tested. For Wire-Wrap wire, advantages of PTFE insulation are now available in single strand size up to AWG 36 (OD 0.43 mm), and multi-strand 3607 or 3707 with OD 0.38 mm.
