Do you have a project that requires the use of #8 gauge stranded wire? Trying to figure out what type of 8 awg wire you need & how much the electrical wire is going to cost?
If so, Wire & Cable To Go has several different options of #8 gauge wires to choose from!
1. Most popular 8 gauge wire we carry is a building wire called #8 AWG THHN/THWN-2 – Stranded Copper Building Wire.
Offered by the foot with a wide selection of colors, THHN comes in a PVC (polyvinyl chloride) insulation with a nylon jacket. THHN wire can be used in a conduit but is not rated for direct burial alone. Our 8 awg THHN is also THWN-2 dual rated which means this conductor is appropriate for use in wet or dry locations at temperatures not to exceed 90° C or not to exceed 75°C in oil or coolants. It is rated for 40 amps @ 60°C.

3. If you are looking for #8 awg copper wire that can be directly buried into the ground without a conduit we recommend our 8 AWG XLP-USE2-RHH-RHW-2 Building Wire which is rated for direct burial.

4. We also carry a few multi-conductor 8 awg wires such as the #8-3 THHN-PVC Tray Cable with Ground. Tray Cables are also rated for direct burial and are sunlight resistant. These Tray Cables are pretty much multi-conductor THHN wires all under one jacket meant to be buried in the ground without a conduit.
