UL Certification of TEX-E Series Wires Category Shift on TEX-E
The UL certifications of TEX-E Series Wires are in transition: they were recertified under the service of UL Subjects 2353, as of April, 2000. Note No.1696 of Log-in (for Technical Support).

Be careful of Similar Misleading Wires!
Other similar wires are on the market which can be confused with TEX-E. They are neither in accordance with most safety standards, nor supported by most certification authorities.
On the left is an overview of a similar product (insulation and conductor) currently on the market, and on the right is its cross section. They may seem familiar to you because of the colour and general appearance (such as a strong resemblance to some model of TEX-E series). This wire product shown above seems to above provide three (3) Nylon insulation layers on a "Polyurethane" enamelled magnet wire with EFTE. You should note that the nylon and the polyurethane are unqualified to form "Solid Insulation" in any way, which the safety standards require for the making of "Triple Insulated Winding Wire."

Insulation Systems for UL1446
As you know, when operation temperatures of the wound components exceed Class A (105C), it is required in accordance with appropriated Insulation System UL 1446/IEC 61857 regardless of temperature rating of each materials/wires. The object of EIS is to evaluate the endurance/life-time with chemical interaction of wound component, not of wire itself.
Please note that this EIS is not the specification of TEX series wires, nor does it guarantee the performance of the wound components using our wires. Whether or not a wound component using TEX-E meet the performance depends on the design and wounding conditions of that component; so that the clients are kindly requested to experiment yourself for confirmation of the actual component.
