Kynar wraped wire is a high end, quality wire. This product is different than most hook-up wire and because of its composition is rated to carry a much higher current. The Kynar coating is more durable and able to withstand higher temperatures without breaking down. The wire itself is a higher, more pure grade of copper with a silver plating. In conjunction with the exceptional Kynar jacket, this wire is capable of handling up to 5 amps of current and with a DC current up to 6 amps.
