MTW, AWM, TEW

Thermoplastic Insulated, Moisture & Oil Resistant 600 Volt Copper

Description

Alan Wire Type MTW/AWM/TEW is primarily used as wiring in machine tools, appliances, and in various building applications as specified by the National Electrical Code. MTW/AWM/TEW conductors are stranded, soft-annealed copper. The conductors are then insulated with a tough polyvinyl chloride (PVC), making the wire heat, moisture, and oil-resistant.
