    300/500V PVC Insulated, PVC Sheathed Power Cables to BS 6004 (Single Core)

    FGD300 05VV-U/R (CU/PVC/PVC 300/500V Class 1/2)

    BS Code: 6181Y (CU/PVC/PVC)

    APPLICATION

    The cables are mainly used in power stations, mass transit underground passenger systems, airports, petrochemical plants, hotels, hospitals, and high-rise buildings. This product type is TUV approved.

    STANDARDS

    Basic design to BS 6004: 2012

    FIRE PERFORMANCE

    Flame Retardance (Single Vertical Wire Test) EN 60332-1-2

    VOLTAGE RATING

    300/500V

    CABLE CONSTRUCTION

    Conductor Annealed copper conductor, class 1 (1.0mm² to 2.5mm²) or class 2 (4mm² to 35mm²) according to BS EN 60228.
    Insulation PVC Type TI 1 according to BS EN 50363-3.
    Outer Sheath PVC Type 6 according to BS 7655-4.2.
    Outer Sheath Option UV resistance, hydrocarbon resistance, oil resistance, anti rodent and anti termite properties can be offered as option. Compliance to fire performance standard (IEC 60332-1, IEC 60332-3, UL 1581, UL 1666 etc) depends on the oxygen index of the PVC compound and the overall cable design. LSPVC can also be provided upon request.
