Choosing between THHN & XHHW wire

Floyd_Mayweather,_Jr._vs._Juan_Manuel_Márquez

Weighing the differences between THHN/THWN-2 & XHHW/XHHW-2 building wire

When it comes to building wire, two of the most common and popular choices for electricians, engineers & homeowners are THHN and XHHW (or the newer and improved THWN/THWN-2 and XHHW-2). These cables come in both copper and aluminum, can have solid or stranded conductors, and are mainly used for power distribution up to 600 volts in the construction of residential, commercial, and industrial buildings.

While these two wire types are very similar and often interchangeable in their application, the differences are important to know in order to make the smartest decision when making a building wire purchase.
