T90 - PVC CSA TWN 75 Single Conductor Copper Wire 600V
Type T90 PVC cable is general purpose building cable used for installation in either conduit (raceways) or for exposed wiring for both wet and dry places. It is therefore constructed with properties that adapts it to the demands of its applications.
The cable is made using soft and annealed copper conductor. The copper is annealed and compressed to improve its flexibility and strength.
As a building wire, the cable meets harsh conditions that require proper protection. That is why a strong, moisture, chemical and heat resistant polyvinyl chloride is used as the cable insulation system. Besides, a nylon covering of top rating is also used to reinforce the insulation.
This single conductor cable has a voltage rating of 600V thus suitable for wiring small circuit loads. Being designed with adequate features for both outdoor and indoor applications, the cable is used in domestic and industrial wiring.T90 PVC-Single Conductor Copper wire is suitable for both exposed and concealed circuit wiring for damp and dry places.
It is also used in raceways installation in either dry or wet locations without bearing any faults. The cable has a maximum conduction temperature of 900C in dry, 750C in wet and 600c incase of exposure to oil. This provides an opportunity to use the wire in any conditions without fears. T90cable has no cable tray rating.
