MIL DTL 16878/14

MIL-DTL16878/14 was specifically designed for Military Installation & Applications. It is a high performance wire built to handle the increasingly adverse environments. It is an irradiation cross-linked polyolefin with impressive properties. It significantly reduces wire and harness routing headaches because it is more heat resistant, tougher and more fluid resistant than TXL.

MIL-DTL16878/14 is rated at 125°C, but it survives temperatures to 240°C and higher. It is safer in overload conditions because it will not melt.

MIL-DTL16878/14 creates opportunities to eliminate unnecessary and expensive convolute tubing, tapes and heat shields that protect inferior wire systems.

MIL-DTL16878/14 processes very well on automated high speed cut and strip equipment. The end result being a Military Application wire ideally suited to applications where heat protection, long life and less expensive wiring harnesses are required.

  • High Temperature Rating: 125°C
  • Low Temperature Rating: -40°C
  • Voltage Rating: 600V
