SPEC 44101

2/C CU 2000V EPDM/CPE Type W Industrial Grade Cable 90°C

Flexible Copper Conductors, Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) Insulation, Single Layer Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE) Jacket

...

Construction:

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

Applications and Features:

Southwire Type W cable is a heavy-duty industrial cable for use in flexible, portable, and extra-hard usage applications per NEC Article 400. Suitable for continuous submersion in water – ideal for submersible pumps. Also suitable for use in light to medium-duty mining applications. Sunlight and oil resistant. Highly flexible and easy to work with in cold conditions. Not for use as permanent building wiring. Meets FT-1 and FT-5 Flame Tests. cUL listing on select items only.
