Marine Grade Primary Wire
Jamestown Distributors offers a full selection of Marine Primary Wire as well as Marine Duplex and Triplex Cable in a wide range of sizes and colors. Duplex or Triplex Cable offers the installer the convenience of paired or triple conductors with the added protection of a white vinyl insulating jacket.
All of our wire is constructed to American Wire Gauge standards, AWG wire is up to twelve percent larger than the equivalent SAE (automotive) wire sizes. AWG wire provides a greater current capacity when compared to SAE gauge wire.
Marine Grade Tinned Wire and Cable is manufactured from tin coated copper strands for maximum protection against corrosion, electrolysis and resistance to fatigue due to vibration and flexing.
Rated at 600 volts and 105 degrees C, the heavy duty insulation is resistant to heat and abrasion. (Exceeds all UL1426, US Coast Guard Charterboat (CFR title 46) and ABYC standards.)
