Alpha Wire EcoGen Family | EcoWire® Series 600 V Standard Hook-Up Wire:
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. The 100% recyclable alternative to PVC-insulated wire, EcoWire offers 45% smaller diameter and 40% lighter weight. 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.
EcoWire contains no halogens, phthalates, or heavy metals. It meets RoHS and WEEE requirements for the elimination of hazardous substances and recyclability. The superior dielectric properties of mPPE make possible a reduced wall thickness while maintaining the same electrical properties as PVC. EcoWire’s diameter is up to 45% smaller than equivalent wires. The 1.03 specific gravity of mPPE is 25% to 40% lower than other insulation materials, such as PVC, polyethylene, and cross-linked polyethylene. Along with the reduced wall thickness, the low specific gravity yields significant weight savings of up to 40%.
