Stranded, bare, and fully soft annealed copper conductor, Class K per ASTM B174. Suitable for harsh conditions.


SOOW Cord UL/CSA has an EPDM l insulation. EPDM is an initial for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer. EPDM is a synthetic rubber that has the ability to be deformed into the required shape. It is also elastic with an excellent tensile strength of about 1000 PSI (pounds per square inch). Tensile strength gives it good resistance to breaking, even under tension. It has 300% flexibility that enables it to regain its original shape and size after a stretch.

EPDM is a good insulator due to its excellent resistance to severe weather, acids, alkalis, aging, water, ozone, sunlight, and oxygen. This excellent resistance ensures the conductor remains effectively functional throughout its service life with no physical or mechanical distraction.


A Chlorinated Polyethylene CPE is a heavy-duty thermoplastic polymer jacket that has superior resistance to chemicals and flames. The jacket is impressively flexible and durable.
