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
Up to 45% smaller diameter
Up to 40% lighter
