Construction Characteristics
Conductor Plain annealed Copper or Aluminium, circular, stranded, class 2 per IEC 60228.
Insulation Semi-conductive screen over the conductor, XLPE (cross-linked polyethylene) insulation and semi conductive screen over the insulation (strippable) applied by simultaneous extrusion in just one operation.
(1) Bonded upon agreement.

Metallic Screen Copper wire screen – annealed copper wires helically wound and an equalising copper tape applied in an open counter-helix. Plastic tape is applied over the screen. Or Copper tape screen – a copper tape, standard thickness 0.1 mm helically applied with overlap.
Inner Sheath Extruded PVC or PE.
Fillers Extruded polymeric material.
Armour Steel double tape, helically applied. Or Galvanized steel wires, helically applied, tightened with plastic tapes.
Oversheath Extruded PVC or PE. Optionally, a Low Smoke Halogen Free thermoplastic compound can be used for cables with need for improved fire behaviour.
