Product Information


18 AWG (16/0.26) BC TXL


This electrical cable is generally used in medium weight industrial and automotive applications. It can operate in a wide range of temperatures, specifically from -40°C to 125°C in both wet and dry environments. The size of the automotive cable varies from 8 AWG to 22 AWG. This electrical wire is mostly meant for medium to light weight applications since its voltage rating goes up to 50 Volts. 

Also Known As:

18 txl wire, 18 awg txl cable, 18 txl automotive wire, 18 awg cable txl, 18 gauge automotive wire, 18 awg automotive wire, 18 gauge primary wire, 18 automotive wire, 18 automotive cable, 18 awg primary cable, 18 car wiring, 18 auto wire, 18 awg auto cable, 18 automotive electrical wiring, 18 awg car electrical wiring, 18 vehicle wiring, 18 awg auto electrical wire, 18 automotive primary wire.


The TXL automotive wire has the following certifications;

  • • SAE J-1128
  • • Ford ESB-M1L123A
  • • Chrysler MS-8288



The automotive wire 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.


TXL insulation is made of cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE). This material can withstand flames, radiation, impact, corrosion, abrasion, sunlight, chemicals, oils, and acids. The insulation is color-coded, which allows easy identification of the cable depending on the different conductor sizes. The insulation can be easily stripped in order to identify whether it’s a TXL wire.
