What Exactly Does THHN Mean?
THHN is a name given that means Thermoplastic, High Heat, Nylon coated…and while that may not matter to you when scrapping, it is still a cool thing to be able to know. It has to do with what temperatures that the wire is resistant to, because don’t forget that all wire that has electricity running through it has a level of heat.
Spaghetti wire is a common phrase that is also used to describe THHN wire (as well as 10-14 gauge wire). Why is it called spaghetti? Well because of how it looks! It is stringy and reminds people of spaghetti and that is where the name came from. Don’t forget that you can’t eat the spaghetti wire….but after you sell it to your local yard you will be able to take that cash and grab some good Italian food!
