XHHW-2 / RW 90 Copper Conductor

Thermoplastic Insulated, Nylon Sheathed Heat, Oil & Gasoline Resistant 600 Volt Copper

Description

Type XHHW-2 conductors are primarily used in conduit or other recognized raceways for services, feeders, and branch circuit wiring, as specified in the National Electrical Code (NEC). XHHW-2 conductors may be used in wet or dry locations. XHHW-2 conductors are rated for 600 volts. Sizes 1/0 and larger have UL’s VW-1 (Vertical Wire) Flame Test. 1/0 AWG and larger may be used in cable tray in accordance with the National Electrical Code. These cables pass IEEE 1202/CSA (70,000 BTU/hr) cable tray flame test.
