Wire insulation is often made of PVC, and it melts when you solder it. But our wire's insulation is made of PTFE, so it's much tougher - it won't melt when you solder it. The wire can be a little tough to strip because the jacket is tough and somewhat slippery. But it will not melt, so feel free to let your soldering iron linger.

In case you're not familiar with PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene), it was invented in 1938 by DuPont, who called it Teflon. You've probably heard of it. The patents have long since expired, so most PTFE today is not made by DuPont. Still, DuPont is touchy about its trademarks, so we say PTFE rather than Teflon so we don't ruffle any feathers over there.

So now you know what it is.

The silver-plating just means there's good conductivity, the wire itself is made of copper. It's 22 AWG 7/30, meaning it's seven strands of 30 AWG wire twisted together, so the overall wire gauge is 22 AWG.
