Pretty nice stuff. Certainly adequate to our
fat-wire needs. Flexibility on the same order
as welding cable and available at comparable
prices.

I did a po' boy's fat-wire terminal installation
by the stuff-n-solder method . . .

The insulation was well behaved and demonstrated
little if any melt-back from the soldering operation.

Bob,
My concern with similar high-strand-count wires for aircraft applications has been that the soft silicone insulation doesn't seem to offer much protection against cutting and abrasion.
What's your take on that? Just be careful to route and support it properly and avoid nicking it with tools during maintenance? Or is the insulation on this wire superior?

I'm not Bob, but if you're talking about the welding cable a lot of us use, do you know any welders? Ever watched what happens to cables on a shop floor, or on a construction site?

The bigger (pardon the pun) issue is that the insulation is quite a bit thicker than milspec wire's insulation, so if you're running it from behind the seats to the firewall, it'll fill up the holes in your bulkheads quicker.

Not sure about the silicone reference; EPDM seems to be a more common insulator.

The samples I have don't look/feel like silicone.
The product data sheet I posted speaks to properties
of the insulation but without mentioning 'silicone'.

The same data sheet suggests a spectrum of
applications . . .

[img]cid:.0[/img]

I suspect that mechanical risks to insulation
failure in airplanes is no greater than many
of those applications cited.

"Cutting" and "abrasion" distresses will attack
ANY insulation. Installation and routing practices
should seek to eliminate such risks irrespective
of type of insulation.
