THHN copper building cabling features self-lubricating polymer jacket

Nov. 9, 2010
SLiPWire is a thermoplastic high heat-resistant nylon-coated (THHN) cable jacketed with a self-lubricating polymer that provides a low co-efficient of friction.

Cerro Wire LLC, a manufacturer of copper electrical building wire and cable, now offers SLiPWire, a thermoplastic high heat-resistant nylon-coated (THHN) cable jacketed with a self-lubricating polymer that provides a lower co-efficient of friction.

According to the company, SLiPWire reduces the time, labor and cost for installation, eliminates the materials and labor needed for lubricating the wire, and cuts down on messy clean-up activities. Independent testing confirms that SLiPWire is equivalent to, or better than, competing products in the copper building wire industry, according to Cerro.

Intertek Testing Services, an independent testing laboratory, observed a test pull conducted at Cerro Wire’s Ogden, Utah manufacturing facility, comparing SLiPWire with competing pre-lubricated THHN products. Intertek verified that the methodology and setup for the test was very well designed to replicate a typical installation and that SLiPWire is equal to if not better than other contenders in the industry.

SLiPWire also employs Cerro Wire’s True Sequential Footage technology, a sequentially printed cable reel that provides accurate wire length with each cut. The reels preclude the need to carry excess cable inventory, providing precision length, accurate footage, and cost control. They also uses Cerro's Max Print identification system to quickly identify the size of the cable, which aids in selection, inspection and prevents costly errors.
