Constructed to withstand corrosive fluids, these products are utilized throughout the Aerospace Industry for general purpose use in pressurized and unpressurized areas of the aircraft.  Any functioning circuits that contain this wire and cable will be limited to operating at 600V, and can be exposed to temperatures ranging from –65 C to +150 C.

The construction of the wire is determined by the wire and cable type, class, and gauge size.  With sixty-five types and seven classes, the specifications cover sizes 24 AWG through 4/0 AWG.  When completed, the products will have a jacket color of white unless otherwise specified.
