The XLPE/Arctic-Flex Control Cable is part of our line of Multi-Conductor Industrial Control and Power Cables. This XLPE Cable has flame-resistant, crosslinked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation, and a flame and sunlight-resistant Arctic-Grade Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) jacket. This industrial control cable is unshielded and has excellent flame, moisture, and low-temperature resistance, as well as good abrasion resistance and low moisture absorption. It also has a maximum temperature of 90°C in wet or dry environments.
