      • EV charging stations
      • Industrial machinery
      • Outdoor and underground projects
      What does THHN stand for?

      THHN stands for "Thermoplastic High Heat-resistant Nylon-coated."

      What is THHN Wire suitable for?

      THHN wire is suitable for electrical conduits, indoor and outdoor use (as long as ranked THWN), building wire across industries, and control circuits.

      Can THHN Be Direct Buried?

      THHN does not have an appropriate rating for direct burial because of its construction, but THHN/THWN-2 with a double rating can.

      Does THHN Have to Be in Conduit?

      Yes, THHN must always be installed in the conduit as per NEC. The only exception to this rule is when THHN is installed in control panels.

      Is THHN Rated for Wet Locations?

      THHN is rated for dry locations, while THWN is rated for wet locations.

      Can THHN Be Used in Underground Conduit?

      The wire used for the underground conduit should have a THWN-2 rating for wet locations.

      Can You Run THHN in Walls?

      You can run THHN wire in walls within conduit or raceway, but NM-B wire is generally a more popular option for indoor wiring.

      Can you use THHN wire for automotive?

      Using THHN wire for automotive applications is not recommended.

      Is THHN wire waterproof?

      THHN/THWN is not waterproof. While it is suited for wet environments, it cannot be directly submerged in water.
