SHONSIN silicone wire has excellent high temperature and low temperature resistance, excellent high pressure resistance, aging resistance, high temperature resistance, acid and alkali resistance, and can be used for a long time. SHONSIN silicone wire is widely used in high temperature wire environments such as lighting fixtures, household appliances, electric appliances, instruments, motor leads and electronics, lamps and so on.
Hook Up Wire: UL3122, UL3123, UL3135, UL3512, UL3536
High Voltage Cable: UL11067 ( double insulated silicone wire )
One of the obvious benefits for SHONSIN silicone wire and silicone cable is flexibility. The combination of silicone rubber cable and the 0.08mm / 0.06mm OFC or Tinned Copper conductor yields the most flexible wire construction. This type of silicone wire is ideal with applications where routing a silicone rubber wire through a tight space is required such as box builds, equipment, or handheld devices, and has excellent weather-ability.
The standard temperature range is -60°C to 200°C. In most applications, it may be heated from 180 to 200°C for a year and is also very flexible at extremely low temperatures (stiffening temperature of approximately -115°C). Compared to Thermoplastic material (like PVC), silicone insulation will not melt when exposed to high temperatures. If the insulation melts, this may cause a short circuit which is very dangerous. SHONSIN high-temperature silicone cable is resistant to high temperatures and will not melt.
Silicone Wire with double insulation (UL11067) has excellent High-Voltage ratings and is often used for 6KV / 10KV High-Voltage. Therefore, the flex silicone wire will be the best choice for high voltage operations.
The downside to silicone is its abrasion resistance, which is fair. Depending on the application this may have no impact, the best uses are static installations or when the silicone wire or silicone cable is not subject to contact with sharp objects. Formulations are available to increase abrasion resistance.
Another disadvantage is general silicone insulated cable is not fire resistant which cannot pass the UL test. VW-1 Standard silicone insulated cable can be customized. But the price is double compared to general silicone cable.

Low abrasion resistance
Due to it's operating temperature range ( -60℃~+200℃ ), extreme flexibility, voltage properties, silicone insulated wire and cables are a popular choice for a variety of industries. By adding glass fiber braid and silicone varnish, the mechanical toughness and cut-through resistance of silicone can be greatly improved. And because of The mineral nature of silicone rubber insulation, this makes the silicone electrical wire uniquely suitable for fire-resistant cables required to maintain circuit integrity in the event of a fire. Good oil and solvent resistance, and good corona, and ozone and weathering resistance, are also one of the many reasons why people choose silicone speaker wire.
