- Product Info
Spec 44 wire has a dual wall construction which combines the outstanding physical and electrical characteristics of radiation crosslinked polyalkene with excellent mechanical and chemical properties of radiation cross-linked polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF).
The result is a wire insulation system that offers a 150°C temperature rating, small size, light weight, solder iron resistance, and resistance to most solvents, fuels and lubricants. Spec 44 wire and cable is highly flame retardant, non-melting, does not cold flow, and though mechanically very tough, is easy to handle and install using conventional tools.
Originally developed for aerospace and military requirements in applications of high density and complex circuitry, Spec 44 wire and cable now finds wide use throughout industry, in commercial and military electronics, avionics, on satelites, aircraft, helicopters, ships, trains, and offshore platforms where environmental conditions demand consistently reliable performance. In airframe applications Spec 44 constructions can offer a modern dimensional replacement for PVC/Nylon/Glass braid type wire and cables.
