Rubber Insulated Wire

This web page provides information about rubber insulated wire in the context of a house rewire.

Rubber insulated wire in a house means that the wiring is old; electricians stopped using rubber insulated wire in the late 1960’s.


The householder should consider replacing rubber insulated wire. Rubber insulate wire becomes brittle over the decades.


Touching the wire, for instance when replacing a light switch, can cause the insulation to flake.


Rubber insulated wire is nearly always black in colour; rubber insulated wire looks like what it is.
