18 gauge 2-conductor high strand count silicone coated wire is ultra flexible and perfect for wiring DC power systems in tight spaces.
- Silicone Wire, 18 Gauge, Ultra Flexible, 2-Conductor
KEY FEATURES OF SILICONE WIRE, 18 GAUGE, ULTRA FLEXIBLE, 2-CONDUCTOR:
- 18 AWG wire gauge handles moderate currents
- Parallel conductors (red & black)
- 150 strands of 0.08 mm tinned copper wire per conductor
- Silicone jacket rated to 600V, 200°C
- 2.3 x 4.6mm outside diameter
- Extremely flexible
This ultra flexible silicone wire is popular for wiring DC power systems on robotics and RC models where space is tight. The parallel conducts are handy for routing power to motors and other similar devices. The flexibility guards against breakage due to flexing and allows for routing in restrictive areas.
The wires use a very high 150 strand count of 0.08mm tinned copper wire per conductor to protect against corrosion and for easier soldering. This is a higher strand count than is found in most silicone wires of this gauge which increases its flexibility.
The silicone jacket is rated to 600V and a temperature of up to 200°C, so it won’t melt easily if you are soldering close to it. Silicone is softer than the PVC used on standard wire for increased flexibility, so you will want to protect it against sharp edges to prevent abrading the insulation.
Due to the very high strand count we recommend tinning the wire with solder or even better using crimp-on ferrules if you are using in a screw terminal block to avoid stray strands.
