Eco-Friendly Hook-Up Wire EcoWire®-Image

Alpha Wire's EcoWire is a revolutionary new hook-up wire than is smaller, lighter, and tougher than traditional PVC hook-up wire, all while being 100% recyclable.

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.

In addition to its ecological benefits, EcoWire brings many performance advantages, including:

    • Up to 45% smaller diameter

  • Up to 40% lighter
  • 10x better abrasion and pinch resistance
  • Better dielectric strength
  • Wide temperature range that meets VW-1
  • Low specific gravity
  • Fully Recyclable

If you are looking for a higher functioning wire that won't compromise the environment, EcoWire is your solution.
