Wire and Cable Dyeing

In complex wire configurations it is necessary to be able to distinguish between different wires and cables. Dyeing is a process that can help mitigate this issue. When a wire is dyed, the material passes through the machine and the wire jacket absorbs the color of the dye, physically changing the outer color of the wire or cable. 

IEWC worker mixes different color dyes for dyeing wire and cable.

Dyeing a wire can often become a solution when manufacturers are experiencing extended lead-times. Turning an in-stock white wire to blue, for example, could shave significant time off delivery. Dyeing services are often popular with users who have very specific branding guidelines or desire a color that may not be an option from the manufacturer. Dyeing allows you to get the wire you want in the color you want.


Wires and cables can be dyed a variety of colors: Black, Blue, Brown, Dark Green, Gray, Light Green, Light Blue, Orange, Pink, Red, Tan, Violet, and Yellow.
