Mil-Spec ETFE Insulated Electric Wire (MIL-W-22759/16)
This special wire is standard on military aircraft, and it is the wire of choice for F1 constructors. MIL-W-22759/16 wire is lighter than our standard wire, with incredibly tough extruded ETFE (ethylene-tetrafluoroethylene) fluoropolymer insulation rated to 150° C (302° F).
The insulation is so tough, you will need the special wire stripping tool listed here to strip the insulation without nicking the wire. The flame-retardant ETFE insulation is thin and light, but resistant to abrasions, cuts, fuel, oil, and most chemicals.
This wire is manufactured with white ETFE insulation only.
