How to choose glass fiber covered wire?


When choosing glass fiber covered wire, the following factors need to be considered:

Electrical Characteristics: Determine the required electrical characteristics such as current rating, voltage rating, and conductivity. These parameters will help you choose the right glass fiber covered wire for your application.
Temperature Rating: Glass fiber covered wire usually has a specific heat-resistant temperature rating. Make sure the glass fiber covered wire you choose can withstand the highest temperature requirements in your application to ensure safety and reliability.

Wire diameter and conductor size: Consider the required wire diameter and conductor size based on your application needs. Thicker glass fiber covered wire generally has a higher current carrying capacity but may require more space. The thinner wire diameter is suitable for applications where space is limited.
Insulation material: The insulation of glass fiber covered wire usually uses fiberglass or asbestos fiber. Make sure you choose an insulation material that meets the needs of your application and is resistant to heat and chemicals.
Application environment: Consider the characteristics of your application environment, such as humidity, the presence of corrosive gases or chemicals. Choose fiberglass covered wire with appropriate protection and corrosion resistance to ensure long-term, reliable operation.
Standards and Certifications: Ensure that the glass fiber covered wire selected meets applicable standards and certification requirements. This will ensure product quality and safety.
Reliability and supplier reputation: Choose a reliable supplier and ensure that the selected glass fiber covered wire is of good quality and reliability. Check the supplier's customer reviews and reputation to ensure you will receive high-quality products and excellent after-sales service.
Environmental protection: Consider the environmental protection characteristics of glass fiber covered wire. Look for products that comply with environmental standards and requirements, such as the RoHS directive (restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances) or the REACH regulations (registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals).
Flexibility and bend radius: For applications that require bending or installation in tight spaces, choose glass fiber covered wire that has good flexibility and a small bend radius. This will help simplify the installation process and ensure line stability.
Abrasion resistance and mechanical strength: If your application requires abrasion resistance and mechanical strength of the cable, choose glass fiber covered wire with a reinforced protective layer or fabric sleeve.
Safety certification: Ensure that the selected glass fiber covered wire meets applicable safety certification standards, such as UL certification (US safety laboratory) or CE certification (in compliance with European safety standards), etc. These certifications demonstrate that a product complies with relevant safety requirements.
Cost-Effectiveness: Consider the cost-effectiveness of glass fiber covered wire. Compare price and quality from different suppliers and brands to find the best value for money.
Applicable standards and specifications: According to the electrical standards and specifications in your area, choose glass fiber covered wire that meets the requirements. Different regions may have different standards and code requirements, make sure the product you choose meets local electrical safety standards.

Supply chain reliability: Ensure that suppliers have good supply chain management and reliable delivery capabilities. This will ensure you get the glass fiber covered wire you need in a timely manner, avoiding production delays or downtime.
Long-term reliability: Consider the long-term reliability of glass fiber covered wire. Check the supplier's product warranty period and warranty terms to learn about the product's life expectancy and after-sales support.
When selecting glass fiber covered wire, it is best to consult with a professional or electrical engineer to ensure you are selecting the best product for your application. They can provide more specific and personalized advice to suit your needs.
