EcoWire® Plus Hook-Up Wire

Alpha Wire’s new EcoWire Plus offers all of the environmental benefits and abrasion-resistance characteristics of standard EcoWire, plus the additional fluid resistance for demanding factory applications.

EcoWire Plus 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 Plus brings many performance advantages, including:

  • Better dielectric strength  
  • Low specific gravity
  • Up to 45% smaller diameter
  • Up to 40% lighter
  • Fully Recyclable

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