The voltage rating for the TCSS is 10k. The actual model number of the wire is 10kTCSS.

I'd not use rubber or PVC, since it degrades over time.

Test lead wire will crack and develop pin hole defects too... the asian stuff is especially not so good.

I prefer suitable insulated wire with a suitable (usually, but not always) PTFE spaghetti sleeve over that. More reliable, imo.

Once the circuit is built and in place why would the plate cap wire ever move enough to be of concern?

Just slide a length of 600V or greater heat shrink tubing over it, shrink it, and call it a day.
