The single copper conductors can be solid or stranded, with annealed or hard, uncoated copper, per ASTM requirements.

Conductors are insulated with black, sunlight-resistant cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE). The insulation is applied concentrically and will be at least 90% of the specified average thickness throughout the entire reel.


TAP Wire is used as a lead from primary phase conductors to equipment bushings. This is suitable for usage in spacer cable, tree wire, weatherproof wire, and bare wire distribution lines rated for 5KV.


The copper conductor is coated with black, thick wall, Cross-linked Polyethylene (XLPE). In addition to being sunlight resistant, the insulation provides excellent mechanical, abrasion, moisture, chemical, and oil resistance.
