Machine Tool Wire MTW-UL 1015 Stranded BC
This stranded machine tool wire bears unique properties that makes it stand out in the list of electrical cables. Since it is used in tough and extreme demanding applications, the cable is designed with high versatility. It has high temperature tolerance and sturdy insulation system. These among many other features make MTW-UL 1015 cable a qualified electrical used in various applications.
Copper used to construct the cable is designed into two styles. Stranded bare copper comes in sizes 22 AWG to 8 AWG while solid copper cables come in sizes 22 AWG to 12 AWG. These cable designs are done according to ASTM B-3. Stranded copper cable will help you in cases where branch wiring is needed while solid conductors are strong, appropriate for applications where you need stable and less flexibility is involved.
A strong and enduring Polyvinyl Chloride material is used as the insulation system. This material has high temperature rating. It is resistant to moisture, oil, chemicals, heat and flame retardant. It prevents any mechanical breakages since it has good shock absorption.
Machine Tool Wire MTW is used majorly in wiring machine tools in the industry and commercial systems. However, harsh the service life may be, it has appropriate features to withstand all the odds. Temperature rating of 900C and voltage of 300V for UL MTW while UL 1015/1011/1028/ BC-5W2 has temp rating of 1050C and volt rating of 600V.
