Our 18AWG wire has an outer diameter of just 2.032mm, this allows for a superior electrical connection while still retaining its ability to use in the heatshrink or heatshrinkless style. This keeps the wire thin making it easier to crimp and sleeve!
This wire’s insulation is made of durable PVC which holds a higher quality than that of silicon insulation. It also allows for better rigidity for your terminals and when training your cables.
We went even further to make sure this wire uses tinned copper to aid with soldering! Since tin is a primary component in solder, this wire makes it easier to use when soldering together those pesky double wires. Tinned copper is also better protected from corrosion than non-tinned copper wire.
Obtain stronger crimps, and more rigidity to your wires making it easier for cable management and wire training.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Which gauge wire do/should I need? 16AWG or 18AWG?
A: It depends on your application but either gauge can be used for your: ATX, EPS, PCI-E, SATA, or Molex cables. 16AWG wire holds its shape better than 18AWG wire so it generally is better for forming or shaping your cables around in your case. A downside is that the cables will be harder to bend, so if you are using a smaller form factor case this may not be ideal. 16AWG wire also fills out the sleeve more and gives the cable a more “heavy duty” feel.
