Hook Up Wire
About Hook Up Wire
Hook up wires are single-conductor insulated wires commonly used for internal electrical wiring. These small wires are most often used in low-current, low-voltage applications such as appliances, medical devices, motors and electronic components.

Types of Hook Up Wire We Offer
Our inventory includes an extensive selection of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) hook up wires that you can choose from based on your individual needs. We can provide you with your wire product of choice in any length you require for your application, as well as 1,000- and 3,000-volt hook-up wires upon request.
You can find the following hook up wire products in our comprehensive inventory.
Kynar wire is a small but strong hook up wire widely preferred for modifying or repairing home electrical devices. This wire type is known for its high conductivity, which accommodates a high level of voltage while promoting an uninterrupted power flow. It also has a flexible construction that makes it easy to solder or strip.
We offer Kynar wire in 26, 28 and 30 American Wire Gauge (AWG) sizes and 10 color options.
UL1007 is among the most basic hook up wire products, making it an excellent choice for general-purpose use. Popular for indoor appliance wiring and electronics manufacturing applications, UL1007 comprises PVC insulation and tinned copper strands, giving this wire durability, flexibility and resistance to fire, water, chemicals and ultraviolet (UV) radiation. It is also rated for 300 volts and temperatures between -20 degrees and 105 degrees Celsius.
UL1015 boasts excellent chemical and heat resistance, making it useful in indoor appliance and general electronics work. This hook up wire is similar to its UL1007 counterpart, albeit with a higher voltage capacity of 600 volts. Like UL1007, this wire is rated for 105 degrees Celsius with a PVC coating for chemical and abrasion resistance.
You can purchase our UL1015 wire in AWG sizes 10-24, as well as many versatile color choices. We also offer spiral striping options.
Like other hook up wires, UL1028 has a structure comprising a stranded tinned copper conductor and PVC insulation, affording it excellent chemical and abrasion resistance and a 105-degrees-Celsius temperature rating. Like other UL-style wires, this product is useful for electronic equipment and indoor wiring applications. Because its tinned copper strands are thicker than other wires, UL1028 has a rating of up to 600 volts.
We carry this flame-resistant wire in AWG 8 with spiral striping options for all of our color choices.
UL1283 hook up wire is a flexible, high-voltage wire that resists flames and abrasion. It is most widely used in applications like device manufacturing, wire machining, thermoplastic equipment wiring and appliance wiring due to its high temperature resistance of -40 to 105 degrees Celsius. It is also rated for 600 volts.
You can purchase our UL1283 wire in 4 and 6 AWG with 133 strands of tinned copper and various color-coding options.
Type E wire is a hook up wire comprising polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) insulation, which accounts for its high durability and damage resistance. This cable has a flexible structure and silver-plated copper strands with a PTFE jacket rated for 200 degrees Celsius. Type E wire supports 600 volts and is available in AWG sizes 14-26. It is most commonly used for indoor and outdoor applications that require high temperature ratings.
Type EE wire is a robust hook up wire suited for high-capacity wiring applications in tough environments such as military wiring, medical electronics, internal appliance wiring and power supply lead wires. It features a strong PTFE insulation called Teflon, which resists chemicals and temperatures up to 200 degrees Celsius.
We offer our Type EE wire in 1,000-volt capacities in AWG sizes 14, 16, 18, 20, 22 and 24.
Our Type ET wire uses Teflon PTFE insulation to achieve high chemical and temperature resistance, including ratings from -60 to 200 degrees Celsius. This hook up wire is useful in high-temperature indoor and outdoor applications such as medical electronics, appliance wiring, power supply lead wire and military-grade harnesses. We offer this 250-volt wire in 20-32 AWG with numerous color options and bulk pricing discounts.
Ordering Hook-Up Wire
There are a few things to keep in mind when purchasing hook-up wire:
- Sizing: The size of your hook-up wire often correlates with voltage ratings. Types UL1007 and UL1015, for instance, are very similar, except the UL1015 has a thicker jacket and supports twice the voltage at 600 volts. Usually, the UL1007 version only comes in 16 AWG through 26 AWG and the UL1015 comes in 16 AWG through 10 AWG. These smaller sizes usually indicate lower voltage capabilities.
- Insulation: Several different types of insulation are available. There’s PVC wire, PTFE wire, electrical wire, and even high-temperature wire. PVC wire is the cheapest and most basic type. Electrical wire has a PVC jacket with a nylon coating that allows it to slip through conduit easier and also resist water, oil, and solvents. This resistance helps it power electronic equipment in many different environments. PTFE wire and high-temperature wire fall into the same category because PTFE wire is rated at 200℃, whereas PVC wire is rated from 90°C-105°C.
- Jackets: Jackets can determine some important characteristics of the wire. For example, PVC wire without a nylon coating should not be used outdoors because it won’t resist water or moisture of any kind. These elements can ruin the wire quickly, so PVC cable without a coating should not be used for applications like dog fences or another underground wiring. The tin coating is also very useful, as it makes it much easier to solder to bare copper during wire harness and assembly manufacturing.
- Strands: Hook-up wire is typically manufactured with a solid copper strand or thinly woven copper strands. Using thin copper strands will make the wire more flexible for those applications that need bendability. A solid strand of copper will keep the wire stiff so that it can be molded into the necessary position and remain there.
