...

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). Color coded black, white, blue, red for sizes #4/0 and smaller and black, white, red, orange for sizes over 250 kcmil
  4. Ground Conductors:Four insulated, bare, soft drawn, annealed, rope stranded, flexible lay copper per ASTM B3/B172
  5. Fillers:Jute fillers applied as needed to round the cable core
  6. Reinforcement Binder:Reinforcing binder with twine applied over the core
  7. Jacket:Black, flame resistant, thermosetting Chlorinated Polyethylene (CPE)

Applications and Features:

Southwire Type G cable is a heavy-duty industrial cable for use in flexible, portable, and extra-hard usage applications where equipment grounding is required per NEC Article 400. Suitable for continuous submersion in water – ideal for submersible pumps, marine application. 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. Not for use as permanent building wiring. Meets FT-5 Flame Test. cUL Listed.
