PREMIUM GXL / TXL
Thin wall GXL / TXL is flexible, shape-retaining, and easy to handle, with its characteristic cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation providing high-temperature protection up to 257°F (125°C).
Pure, high-quality stranded copper means reliable wiring every time. Meets or exceeds SAEJ1126, Ford ESB-M1L85A, and Chrysler MS-8900 specifications. Although advertised for 12vDC, GXL wire can handle up to 50vDC.
EASY TO USE
Primary GXL and TXL wire is the go-to wiring for hard-to-fit areas in cars, trucks, trailers, boats, and much more. Strips beautifully and can be run neatly given it’s ability to retain shape. Available in multiple colors and sizes.
GXL vs. TXL Primary Wire
Both GXL and TXL primary wire are insulated with high-temperature resistant cross-linked polyethylene. TXL, however, has thinner insulation and lower weight than its GXL counterpart. In practice, the thicker GXL is often used for engine compartment wiring while the thinner, more flexible TXL is used for everything else.
But in the end, there’s not much difference between TXL and GXL. With either wire, you’ll get the proven resilience, quality, and low cost that car enthusiasts need.
