Cross-Link Wire

wires-datacommLapp Tannehill is a stocking distributor of irradiated cross-link hook-up wire such as UL 3173, UL 3321, UL 1430, UL 1429, UL 3195, UL 3196, UL 1534, UL 1536, and other irradiated cross-link wire products. Irradiated cross-link wire and irradiated wire is highly resistant to heat and prevents distortion of the insulation when the wire is subjected to temporary overloads and high temperatures. Cross-linking the PVC or Polyethylene by irradiation also increases the abrasion resistance and makes it superior to regular vinyl insulation. 

Irradiated PVC lead wire is widely used in high-density wiring, but the wire functions well in a variety of other applications. While UL 1429 and UL 1430 are suitable for internal wiring of electronic equipment, computers, business machines, and appliances, UL 1431 lead wire works well for internal wiring of electronic equipment, power circuits, air conditioners, business machines, and appliances.
