Where To BuySpec Sheet PDF

Metal-Clad Cable with two-, three-, of four-circuit THHN/THWN conductors, and a bare aluminum grounding/bonding conductor in constant contact with the armor, allowing it to serve as a redundant grounding path. Intended for use in accordance with the National Electrical Code®. Conductor constructions have the insulated conductors cabled together with a separator tape, displaying the identification print legend, wrapped around the assembly. The bare aluminum grounding/bonding conductor is cabled on the outside of the separator tape. An interlocked aluminum armor is applied over the entire construction.

  • Solid Conductors: Soft, uncoated copper per ASTM B3
  • Stranded Conductors: Uncoated copper per ASTM B3, B8, B787
  • Bare Grounding/Bonding Conductor: 8000 Series aluminum alloy per ASTM B800; Sizes 12 AWG – 8 AWG

THHN/THWN-2 PVC (polyvinyl chloride) with color-coded nylon (polyamide) covering


Aluminum-based alloy armor applied over the complete assembly
