This is more a shopping tip than anything, but it still bears mentioning. Like everything else in this world, there are varying degrees of wire quality. For years the standby wire insulation was Polyvinyl Chloride or PVC. Relatively tough, flexible, and inexpensive, it gets the job done, however, PVC is a thermoplastic. And like other thermoplastics like lacquers and synthetic enamels, it tends to oxidize and brittle with age.
Cross-linked polyethylene insulation is far more durable yet doesn’t cost much more. It’s a thermo-setting plastic, which means it has a molecular structure that cross-links into very durable chains. And like other thermo-setting plastics, like polyurethanes, it remains pliable and resists oxidation and abrasion to a far greater degree.
