This lead wire conductor is a tinned copper conductor. The size of the conductor dictates the application and the type of installation the cable will use, as well as its totaling weight; the bigger the conductor the higher the electrical resistivity. Copper has good electrical properties, which improve the voltage distribution of the hook up wire UL 1061 cable, as it will not succumb to deformations. 

The cable is also tinned for maximum performance. Tinning reduces friction build up as it makes the surface of the conductors smoother. This offers free strip from the insulation, reducing the termination time during installation.


Reinforced insulation is provided by a black PVC jacket, which is sunlight-resistant.
