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. It is
lighter than our standard wire, with incredibly tough extruded ETFE (ethylene-tetrafluoroethylene) fluoropolymer insulation. 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.
