THHN/THWN-2 Copper Building Wire Pulled in conduit for feeder and branch circuits. No conduit included. THHN has a heat-resistant thermoplastic cover approved for working temperatures up to 90 degrees Celsius in dry locations. THWN resists moisture, oil and gasoline and is approved for temperatures to 75 degrees Celsius in dry, wet or oil locations. THHN/THWN is made from soft annealed copper and insulated with heat- and moisture-resistant PVC and covered with nylon (polyamide). Available in colors to simplify identification of conductors after wire is pulled in conduit. By American Wire Gauge (AWG). Stranded wire has 19 strands. Cost based upon purchasing 1,000’ reels. For cut-to-length prices, add 100% to the material cost. Copper wire prices are highly volatile.
