What mean AWM wire and its application

AWM is the abbreviation for Appliance Wiring Material, it's a Standards for testing and certification from UL. (UL is abbreviation for Underwriter Laboratories Inc.)

It uses scientific testing methods to study and determine whether various materials, devices, products, equipment and buildings are harmful to life and property and the degree of harm; Determine, compile and issue the corresponding standards and materials that help to reduce and prevent the loss of life and property, and carry out the real situation investigation business.


UL safety testing institute is the most authoritative organization in the United States, and also the largest non-governmental organization engaged in safety testing and appraisal in the world.

It is an independent, non-profit, professional institution that does experiments for public safety.

AWM wire widely use for electrical products, meet UL758 standard, such as UL1007, UL1015, UL1430, UL3266,UL3173, UL10086…. Have too many type different wire under UL758 standard.

The AWM wire conductor usually use Oxygen free copper, such as pure copper conductor, tinned copper conductor, silver plated copper conductor, nickel plated copper conductor ect, and conductor including solid copper conductor and stranded copper conductor or stranded plated copper conductor, stranded copper conductor make AWM wire soft and bending resistant too.

And add outside different insulation material to make PVC wire, XLPVC wire, XLPE wire, FEP wire, PTFE wire, SILICONE wire, silicone +BRAIND wire ect to meet different rate temperature, rate voltage an working environment.


It widely used in many type electrical products. Such as internal connecting wires, automobile wires, special high temperature wires for microwave ovens, automobile oil tank lead wires, motor winding wires, military wires, composite structure oil-resistant and wear-resistant wires, special motor lead wire etc.
