...

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)
  4. Reinforcement Binder:Reinforcing twine.
  5. 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. Approved for use per the NEC® as Type RHH/RHW-2 90°C wet or dry. Meets FT-1 and FT-5 Flame Tests.
