The Characteristics of House Wire

House wires are suitable for laying at the fixed places. It is widely used in connecting of power device, lighting, daily electrical appliance, instrument etc. with AC rated voltage up to and including 450/750V(U0/U).
The product implement the standards GB/T5023, equivalent to IEC60 227. And it can also be made complying with ASTM, DIN, BS standards etc. In addition, we can design and manufacture the products as t he requirements of customers.
Brief construction:
1) Conductor: Copper or aluminium, Solid
2) Insulation: PVC
3) Number of cores: Single core
4) Other special characteristics: Design and manufacture according t o the requirements of customers.
Service performance:
1) Long-term working temperature: not be higher than 70°C
2) When laying the cable, the ambient temperature should not lower than 0°C

Do you have any certification for house wire?
We have CE and IEC.
What does house wire color means?
The red wire generally represents the fire wire, and the blue wire represents the neutral wire in a three-wire circuit. The yellow and green wires represent the ground wire, which is used for safe use. Home wiring can be distinguished not only by color, but also by meter for more accurate results.
