Silicone Wire Handles High Voltage In Extreme Environments

Available in sizes from 4 AWG to 30 AWG, Cicoil’s ultra flexible silicone wire carries voltage ratings up to 42 kVdc. The wire is durable, flame retardant (UL 94V-0), free of halogens, and performs reliably in extreme temperature conditions, i.e., -65°C to +260°C.  Encapsulation is tear-resistant, needs no external armor or conduit for protection, and reportedly will not deform or wear during a lifetime of more than 10 million cycles.  Additionally, the wire exceeds NASA 1124 outgassing specifications for space use and vacuum requirements, and sports a Class 1 rating for clean room use.
