PVC vs. GXL wire…feel the burn!

A very famous butler once stated; “Some men just want to watch the world burn.”

Others just want to burn 7 inch sections of PVC and GXL wire to prove a point (View the video here!) on our YouTube page.

We’ve touted the benefits of GXL wire for quite a while, but decided to provide some proof to back up our claims. We simulated a short circuit by sending a 50 amp current through a 7 inch length of PVC wire, followed by the same length of the GXL wire we use to build our harnesses.

If nothing else, it was a great excuse to get two of the guys (Markus and Kris) behind many of our YouTube videos out from behind the camera (or microphone) just long enough to sneak a few pictures.

I won’t spoil the video by writing about the results here, but it’s safe to say our experiment showed a pretty clear winner.
