TEX/TW FEP Twisted

TEX/TW FEP Twisted

FEP is an extruded fluoropolymer suitable for use up to 400 F (200C), and is flame retardant and non-propagating in fire conditions. Conductors are extruded with FEP and twisted in a 1-1/2″ to 2-1/2″ lay. This is a non-jacketed construction. The product is moisture/chemical resistant and provides an economic alternative with smaller OD profile. This construction also provides all the benefits of FEP at an economical price point.
