What does VIR mean?

A VIR is a wire that is primarily made of a tinned conductor with a rubber coating. Tinning the conductor prevents the rubber from adhering to it. The thickness of the rubber is primarily determined by the operating voltage for which the wire is designed. To protect the conductor from moisture, cotton branding is applied over the rubber insultations. So, the wire is waxed to ensure cleanliness.
