For many years the standard hookup wire in light aircraft has been MIL-W-5086A, which calls for use of tin-coated copper conductor rated at 600 volts and temperatures of 105°C. This basic wire is then coated with various insulating coatings including PVC. There has been much discussion during the past few years about the use of wire with PVC in aircraft. The Air Force does not permit such wire to be used in military aircraft due to the toxic fumes generated in the event of a fire which can disable the crew. Although there is no formal restriction on the use of MIL-W-5086A wire as of early 1991, as our supplies of MIL-W-5086A wire are depleted we will now be supplying MIL-W-22759/16 wire which complies with current military and anticipated future FAA requirements.
This top quality aircraft unshielded wire is manufactured to Specification MIL-W-22759/16. It features standard tin-plated copper conductor and is insulated with extruded Tefzel (ethylene/tetrafluorbethylene) which has a maximum temperature rating of 150°C. This wire is rated for 600 volts.
