Alpha Wire’s new EcoWire is the latest innovation in hook-up wire. A true engineering breakthrough, EcoWire achieves increased performance in a wire that is fully recyclable.
EcoWire derives its advantage from its unique insulation, a modified polyphenylene ether (mPPE) thermoplastic. mPPE-based insulation is non-halogenated and contains no heavy metal pigments, allowing it to help manufacturers meet Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) requirements.
In addition to its ecological benefits, EcoWire brings many performance advantages, including:
- Better dielectric strength
- Wide temperature range that meets VW-1
- Low specific gravity
- More durable with up to 10x better abrasion and pinch resistance resistance
- Up to 45% smaller diameter
- Up to 40% lighter
- Fully Recyclable
