Type MTW/UL1284 Bare Copper Wire
Type conductors are primarily used in control cabinets, in machine tool applications and appliance wiring applications. Applications requiring Type MTW conductor is appropriate for use in dry locations at 90°C, or not to exceed 60°C in wet locations or where exposed to oils or coolants. Applications requiring Type AWM conductor is appropriate for use at temperatures to not exceed 105°C in dry locations.

TYPE MTW/UL1284 BARE COPPER WIRE
The TYPE MTW/UL1284 BARE COPPER WIRE is known to offer maximum resistance to natural environmental stress like humid, saline and wet climates .It also often succeeds the flame test thus working best in dry areas. MTW is an initial for Machine Tool Wire. The wire is often very flexible a property that enables it to be easily transported and folded to fit in cable carriers, flexibility also increases durability because it can be severally folded without developing weak lines and eventually breaking.
The cable is made up of stranded bare copper conductor. The bare copper is commonly used for energy installation to ensure efficient electrical and thermal conduction for optimal efficiency in energy transmission. Stranded unlike solid wires are more flexible and durable due to their supple nature.
The TYPE MTW/UL1284 BARE COPPER WIRE is insulated with Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), a popular long chain polymer which is a thermoplastic material known for its high resistance to heat, water and oil. This type of insulation offers lower resistance to the flow of electric current thus ensuring efficient electric transmission. PVC does not conduct electricity totally thus ensuring safety from electric shock to the operator.
The cable is good for use in arid areas at a temperature of 90 degrees Celsius and temperatures not exceeding 60 degrees Celsius for wet areas. It is applicable in;
• Control cabinet
• Machine tools
