FAQs about Mil-Spec Wire

Can you use Mil-Spec wire in place of UL Rated wire?

Typically a mil-spec wire cannot be used instead of a UL rated wire.  If a UL wire is called for, usually there are specific requirements that only a UL wire will meet.  There are many wires that carry a dual rating, although each standard may recognize different temperature or voltage limits.
