  • B800 8000 Series Aluminum Alloy Wire for Electrical Purposes – Annealed and Intermediate Tempers.
  • B801 Concentric-Lay-Stranded Conductors of 8000 Series Aluminum Alloy for Subsequent Covering or Insulation.

Construction

Type RHH or RHW-2 or USE-2 AlumaFlex® conductors are compressed stranded TRIPLE E AA-8000 (8176-H24) series Aluminum Alloy insulated with cross-linked polyethylene. A triplex construction consists of two phase conductors and one neutral. The neutral conductor contains three yellow extruded stripes and sequential footage marks. Conductors are durably surface printed for identification.
