What’s in This Black Cord?
The construction of our SVT B wire features 3 conductor wires (positive, negative, and ground) insulated by a PVC housing and finished with a high-quality braided rayon cloth cover.

The rated voltage for this wire is 300V.
How to Use This Cloth Covered Black Wire in Your Next Project
Regardless of the size and scale of your project, we recommend ordering one to two feet more than you require, just to compensate for the length cuts and wire stripping you might have to do. The maximum weight rating depends on the final application and assembly.
Note: As with any home lighting project or DIY fixture, we recommend consulting a licensed electrician if you’re undertaking any wiring yourself.
Please note: For traceability reasons for our UL Listed product, we cannot accept returns for cut-to-order wire. That’s why it’s important to confirm the color, dimensions, and specifications before ordering.
To get the best results, we recommend ordering a sample of our black cord to see this color in person.
