Standards & References

  • ASTM B3 Standard Specification for Soft or Annealed Copper Wire
  • ASTM B172 Standard Specification for Rope-Lay-Stranded Copper Conductors Having Bunch-Stranded Copper Conductors
  • UL 1650 Standard for Portable Power Cable
  • RoHS-2 (European Directive 2011/65/EU)

Construction

  • Conductor:Bare, soft drawn, annealed, flexible, rope-lay stranded copper per ASTM B3/B172
  • Separator Tape:Non-conducting tape applied between the conductor and insulation to facilitate stripping
  • Insulation:Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM). Color coded black, white, green.
  • Fillers:Paper fillers applied as needed to round the cable core
  • Tape:Reinforcing tape applied over the cabled core for improved mechanical integrity and ease of stripping
  • Reinforcement Binder:Reinforcing twine applied over the tapped core
  • Jacket:Black, flame resistant, thermosetting Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE)
