M22759/16 Tefzel Wire

M22759/16 Standard Wall Extruded ETFE Wire

MIL-W-22759/16 wires have extruded ETFE insulation for aerospace and other applications requiring light weight, tight diameter tolerances, and enhanced mechanical toughness. ETFE insulation also provides exceptional resistance to radiation and chemicals.

Construction Details

  • Conductor:Tin-plated copper (TC)
  • Operating Temperature: 150°C
  • Insulation:Extruded ETFE

So what's the difference between /32 and /16 wire ?

The major difference between these two specifications of wire is the outer jacket, both /16 and /32 offer the same temp and voltage rating. Where these two differ are the types and amounts of Tefzel used.

M22759/16- Ethylene Tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE) 24 awg - 2/0 awg

  • Slightly larger O.D over /32 wire by roughly 15%*
  • Slightly heavier compared to /32 wire by roughly 20%*

M22759/32- Fluoropolymer Cross-linked Modified (ETFE)  30 awg -12 awg

  • Slightly smaller O.D over /16 wire by roughly 15%*
  • Slightly lighter compared to /16 wire by roughly 20%*

* Weight and O.D. comparisons based on 24 ga.
