Arctic Grade to BS 6500

Application and Description

These cables are designed to withstand severe external temperatures. The Arctic Grade PVC mains ords generally manufactured to BS6500 will remain flexible at temperatures down to minus -20°C making them particularly suitable for outdoor applications and for use where flexibility is required at sub zero temperatures. At normal temperatures the cable is very limp and flexible, offering some of the characteristics usually found in elastomeric cables.
