8/2 SOOW CORD UL/CSA - BLACK 600V
8/2 SOOW Cord UL/CSA- Black
Allowable Ampacity For 8/2 SOOW Cord UL/CSA- Black: 40 Amps
SOOW is a water and weather-resistant service cable with an oil-resistant jacket and insulation that meets the requirements of Underwriters Laboratory (UL) and CSA. It is a portable electrical cable that offers superior resistance to abrasion. The cable famously stays intact when in contact with a hot surface, making it perfect for tough applications, including compressors, industrial machinery, push-button remotes, industrial control systems, and water purification systems. SO is used in mills, marinas, mines, industrial, commercial and residential facilities. Common uses also include motor leads, portable lights, battery chargers, portable stage lights, and portable machinery. It is also perfect for industrial plants, steel mills, breweries, theaters, process facilities, and construction settings. It is also suitable for National Electric Code Article 400 applications. The cable exhibits premium flexibility and is resistant to chemicals, deformation, acids, oil, water, sunlight, and air. The voltage rating is set at 600. A multiconductor cable is suitable for circuit branching and direct burial. The temperature range is -40°C to 90°C. SOOW electrical cable maintains its flexibility in both hot and cold applications.

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.
Carolprene jacket has superior mechanical strength and excellent resistance to abrasion, UV, weather, moisture, oil, acids.
