XHHW-2/RW90 building wire is intended for general purpose applications
utilized in conduit,
underground in conduit, or other recognized
raceways for services, feeders, and branch-circuit wiring
as specified in the National Electrical Code
(NEC). Type XHHW-2/RW90 is permitted for 600 volt
applications and can be used in wet or dry
locations at temperatures not to exceed 90ºC. Suitable
for applications requiring low-leaking circuits
and a dielectric constant of 3.5 or less.
A great alternative to eliminate the need for
lube. Slick outer surface for easy pulling.
XHHW-2/RW90 is available in sizes 8 AWG
throug 1000 KCMIL. On 250 KCMIL and larger,
sequiential foot markings located every foot for
easy measuring. Rated VW-1. For 1 AWG
through 4/0 AWG, sequential foot markings on
master reels only unless otherwise specified.
6 AWG and larger rated Sunlight Resistant in all
colors. 1/0 AWG and larger are rated for
cable tray use and comply with IEEE 1202/FT4
(70,000 Btu/hr) flame test and ICEA T-29-520
(210,000 Btu/hr) flame test.
