What is Marine Wire?
Marine wire is designed and manufactured to withstand the harsh marine environment. The marine environment can include the need to be resistant to acid, alkali, abrasion, oil, flame, gasoline and moisture. This type of wire is ABYC compliant meaning that the wires are color coded making installation and maintenance a breeze.
How is Pacer Group wire manufactured? Well, Pacer Group marine wire is constructed from high quality tinned copper wire. This type of conductor or wire is chosen for it's ability to resist corrosion better than other types. Finely stranded, tinned copper wire provides excellent flexibility making it ideal for routing. The marine environment has many tight spaces such as hulls where easy routing is beneficial. This level of flexibility also makes it the perfect choice for use with marine switches. We use a proprietary insulation designed for flexibility and durability to jacket the conductor. So when you see Pacer Group you know it means quality.
