12 AWG (65/30) BC GPT 105°C
Automotive wire is among the wide range of electrical cables used as power cables in the automotive industry, for motor leads, and as fire alarm cable. These cables are relatively robust and can withstand high heat and high impact environments. The primary cable can operate in a wide range of temperatures of between -40°C in wet conditions and 105°C in hot environments. Auto electrical wire is categorized according to sizes, most specifically the AWG sizes, which range from 8 AWG to 20 AWG. It also has a high voltage rating of up to 25 VAC.

The automotive GPT wire cable has a stranded bare copper wire conductor. Copper is the most common material used in electrical wires and cables, which is mostly because it has amazing electrical properties and is cheaper compared to other metals. The stranding enhances its flexibility and enables it to carry more current.
Automotive wire insulation is made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which is lead-free. PVC is a strong material and can withstand any punishing environment it is subject to. It can withstand heat, moisture, impact, abrasion, corrosion, chemicals, oils, and weather. The PVC is color-coded to enable easy identification of the cable.
