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, red, 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)
