CONDUCTOR

Flexible copper conductors are made from high conductivity Copper rods of 8mm diameter. The rod is drawn to required sizes of fine wires for the construction of conductors of different areas of cross section. Annealed plain copper conductors used in the flexible cables and cords conform to the requirements of table 3 class 5 of IS: 8130-1984. The construction of conductor is also made according to customer specification. 

Single Core Unsheated Flexible Cable in Voltage Grade 1100v.

INSULATION

PVC insulations & other insulations like, FR PVC I FRLS PVC / HR PVC / ZERO HALOGEN & TEFLON (PTFE) With HR PVC. 'Type A' PVC Compound suitable for PVC insulation confirming to IS: 694: 1990 FR PVC insulation has fire retardant properties. It restricts the spread of fire. FRLS PVC insulation has better fire retardant properties & also emits Low Smoke, in case of fire.

HR PVC INSULATION

HR PVC Insulation HR PVC Insulation ensures insulation stability at conductor temperature of 85C & I05C, in case of HR85 & HR 105PVC insulation respectively.

 Standard Colours: Black, Red, Blue, Yellow, Green. (for earthing) Supplied in 90 metre lengths in attractive cartons. Confirm to 1S-694 -1990.
