Applications: Southwire Type MTW/TEW or AWM is used for machine tool wiring and internal wiring of appliances. Typical applications include wiring for refrigeration equipment, air-conditioning equipment, control wiring of machine tools, automatic washers, etc. Type MTW rating permits use in (i) dry locations not to exceed 90°C (ampacity is limited to 75°C conductor temperature per NFPA 79); or (ii) wet locations or other applicable locations when exposed to oil or coolant at temperatures not to exceed 60°C. Type TEW rating permits use in (i) dry locations not to exceed 105°C; or (ii) wet locations or other applicable locations when exposed to oil or coolant at temperatures not to exceed 60°C. When used as AWM, intended uses are limited to dry locations at temperatures not to exceed 105°C (applicable to both UL and CSA ratings). Standard product is marked Style 1015 and various other styles. SPECIFICATIONS Southwire Type MTW/TEW or AWM-I A meets or exceeds all applicable requirements of: • ASTM B174 Sizes 18 – 10 AWG).
