Standards / Testing Specifications
THHN/THWN-2 conforms to the following standards:
- UL 83 for Thermoplastic Insulated Wires and Cables (THHN/THWN-2)
- UL 758 for Appliance Wiring Materials (AWM)
- UL 1063 for Machine Tool Wire (MTW) (stranded conductors only)
- PNS 35 Thermoplastic Insulated Copper Wires and Cables 600 Volts
Ideal for cable tray installation, wire ways, open wiring, conduits, service entrance, feeders, and branch circuits for permanent installations. Suitable for power and lighting installations in residential, commercial, and industrial establishments.
Temperature rating not to exceed:
- THHN/THWN: 90°C dry and damp, 600V
- THHN/THWN: 75°C wet or in oil, 600V
- THWN-2: 90°C dry, wet or in oil, 600V
- CT-rated lead-free THHN/THWN cables are insulated with special PVC formulation that makes it more flame retardant than ordinary THHN cables.
- More tolerant to heat with its better flame retardant PVC.
- The insulation is made of materials that do not contain lead as stabilizer making it "environment friendly".
- The nylon jacket offers mechanical protection and resistance to petroleum byproducts, chemical reagents, and oils. It is also abrasion-resistant, allows higher gliding and greater ease in installation.
