Machine Tool Wire MTW - UL 1015 Solid TC
This solid machine tool wire has unique properties that is why it stands out in the list of electrical cables. Since it is used in tough and extreme demanding applications, the cable is designed with toughness to meet its tasks with success. It has high temperature tolerance and sturdy insulation system. These among many other features make MTW-UL 1015 solid TC cable an appropriate cable for vast applications.
The conductor is formed from two types of copper conductor design; stranded and solid. The copper being highly susceptible to corrosive reactions is tinned to protect it and also improve its workability. Stranded tinned copper conductors are used to design sizes 22 AWG to 8 AWG while solid tinned copper for sizes 22 AWG to 10 AWG as per ASTM B-33 and M-33 respectively.
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.
It is designed with super strength and top qualities appropriate for tough outdoor applications. The cable is largely used for machine wiring where the utility voltage rating is 600V. It has the ability to withstand high temperature and harsh climatic conditions hence suitable for industrial works. The cable is flame retardant, having passed flame tests, it has adequate safety measures.

Frequently Asked Questions - Machine Tool Wire MTW - UL 1015 Solid TC
What special instructions do I need to follow when using Machine Tool Wire MTW - UL 1015 Solid TC?
There are two important things you want to ensure when using UL 1015 Solid TC wire. One, make sure that you do not exceed the specified temperature rating. This wire is designed to work in applications of up to 105 degrees Celsius. If you exceed this range, you could damage the system, equipment, or the apparatus you have installed the wire. Second, don’t exceed the voltage rating which stands as 600 volts. You may realize that some constructions of this wire are meant to work in operations of up to 90 degrees Celsius, 600 volts. Therefore, keep that temperature rating in mind.
What elements can I use to identify UL 1015 Solid TC wire?
If you want to identify UL 1015 Solid TC wire, you can look at the core material and the insulation. This wire is made of tinned copper material. Therefore, when you strip out the insulation, the outer surface will look grayish or silvery, and this is the color of tin metal that is used to coat the primary material. The center or core part of the wire or strand will look reddish or coppery because it is made of copper. You may also want to look at the insulation material and in this case, UL 1015 Solid TC wire is insulated with PVC material.
What are the approvals and certifications for UL 1015 Solid TC wire?
This wire has met may standards and certifications. It has met the flame compliance tests UL VW-1 and CSA FT-1. It has industry approvals including UL CT Tray rating, UL THHW, SAE J378, and UL Standard 1063-MTW.UL 1015 Solid TC wire is also approved for UL Standard 758- Styles 1335,1344,1231,1032,1230,1028,1011, and 1015.It also meets the UL Standard 1426 - BC-5W2: 16 AWG - 8 AWG.
In what applications can I use UL 1015 Solid TC wire?
You may use your UL 1015 Solid TC wire in electronic equipment, control panels, switchgear, manufacturing equipment, machine tools, and appliances.
