Thursday, Jan 17, 2013
Cerro Wire LLC, a leading manufacturer of copper electrical building wire and cable, announces that it now carries XHHW-2 cross-linked polyethylene (XLP) insulated copper conductors with a SLiPWire® jacket and True Sequential Footage™. XHHW-2 is ideal for use in conduit or other recognized raceways for service, feeder, and branch circuit applications as specified in the NEC®. It is a good choice for industrial applications where better insulation toughness and resistance to moisture and heat are required.
XHHW-2 can be used in wet or dry locations at temperatures up to 90°C. The XHHW-2 insulated copper conductors are available in sizes from 14 AWG to 750 MCM, with outer dimensions ranging from 0.120 inches to 1.136 inches. Sizes 1/0 and larger are rated for cable tray (CT) use. The product is available in reels of 1,000, 2,000, 2,500, or 5,000 feet.
SLiPWire XHHW is manufactured using Cerrowire’s Self-Lubricating Polymer (SLP®) technology, so it can be installed without a pulling lubricant. SLiPWire XHHW-2 also features True Sequential Footage, which is guaranteed by Cerrowire to be accurate to ±0.5 percent on reels 1000 feet and longer for sizes 1 AWG and larger.
