Storing your marine vehicles for the winter can be incredibly stressful. Freezing liquids, pests nesting in your hull and dying batteries are all annoyances that can occur when your boat or personal watercraft is left unattended for months. However, one of the most troublesome issues that can surface after winter storage is deteriorated primary wires.
If your marine primary wires lose integrity in the cold winter months, it can mean hours of labor and hundreds of dollars in replacement wires. EWCS 14 AWG marine primary wires are composed of superior materials and manufactured to strict standards so they will stand up to the rigors of extended inactivity in freezing temperatures.
Tinned Copper Wires in the 14 AWG Marine Primaries Resist Deterioration
The most common location of failure for 14 AWG Marine Primary Wires is at connection points and terminals, where the bare wire is exposed. Any time metal is unprotected it is susceptible to be corroded by any reactant it comes in contact with. For marine vehicles, this usually means water rich with minerals or salt. This problem is exacerbated when these compounds are left for months on the wire during the off-season.
The EWCS 14 AWG marine primary wires have a special defense against this rust rot. The conductive copper strands are fully encased in a thin tin coating; tin is an extremely stable metal that does not easily react with atmospheric elements. This means that the exposed primary wires are protected against any residual water or harmful elements in the air all winter long.
EPDM Jacket Covering 14 AWG Marine Primary Wire Will Not Crack in Storage
In addition to the tin coating, all of our 14 AWG marine primary wire are insulated with premium PVC Our premium PVC is extremely durable and is resistant to acids, abrasion, alkalis, gasoline, moisture and oil. So, if any common marine vehicle chemicals are spilled on you primary cables, they will not damage them.
Another important attribute of PVC is its temperature rating. It can withstand temperatures as high as 105C and as low as -20C. In the winter this is critical. Lower quality jackets will become brittle in colder temperatures and crack under normal operation when used later. The PVC retains its flexibility under freezing temperatures and will not deteriorate while in storage.
All EWCS 14 AWG Marine Primary Wires Are Manufactured in America
To make sure we can guarantee the superior quality of our marine primary wires, we manufacture all of them in American factories. We use only the best raw material and most advanced manufacturing techniques to ensure all our marine primary wires meet the highest standards. You can be confident that all our cables and wires are made to withstand the stressful conditions experienced in marine hulls, both in storage and while in use.
Don’t spend all winter fretting about the condition of your boat’s electronics. Make sure your marine vehicles can come out of storage ready to run by updating to EWCS 14 AWG marine primary wires.
