SCS - 18 (halogen free)

The SCS - 18 is an 18 gauge, 19 strand single-lead. Each strand is made of very high grade Matched Crystal (MC) OFC covered with a dense and very pure silver coating.


  • The resistance of this wire is: 17.8 Ohm/km.
  • The total metal cross-section area is: 0.97 mm².
  • The external diameter is: 1.82 mm.
  • The insulation is made of PTFE.
  • The diameter is too small to make a clear type printing on this wire.
  • The main application area of this wire is internal interconnect wiring in pre and power amplifiers.
  • Four times SCS - 18 twisted together (with clockwise conductor wiring +-+- = starquad) makes a very fine interconnect.
  • The insulation voltage rating is 600 Volt RMS and the actual test voltage is 3500 Volt RMS.
  • The SCS - 18 is available in 9 colours: black, brown, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, grey and white.

The SCS - 18 is available on 100 or 200 meter reels.

Shipping: 1 x 200 m. reel in a 275 x 275 x 220 mm. box with a total shipping weight of 3.21 kg.
