Frequently Asked Questions- Automotive Wire GXL
What specific instructions do I need to follow when using Automotive Wire GXL?
When using this wire, you should make sure the application or installations do not exceed the defined temperature and voltage ratings. GXL is designed for operations of up to 125 degrees Celsius and voltage of 60 volts in direct current applications and 25 volts in alternating current installations.
What elements should I look at when I want to identify Automotive Wire GXL?
Look at the physical appearance of the wire. You need to strip off the insulation and look at the copper of individual strands. The strands will look reddish or coppery because they are made of copper material. Look at the insulation also, and you will find that this wire is insulated using XLPE material. Other things to examine are the industry approval and car manufacturers standards like Chrysler MS-3450. The wire should have a label that shows it meets this standard.
How is the Automotive Wire GXL engineered for optimal performance?
A cross linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation is used on the wire to enhance protection against environmental factors and chemical substances. The wire has thin wall and works effectively with most standard connectors for automotive work. The wire is thin-walled allowing it to have a small diameter for easy installation in hard-to-fit areas within trailers and trucks. It also has a higher temperature range of up to 125 degrees Celsius. It can be used in engine compartments where temperatures are pretty high because this wire resists heat.
