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.
