KYNAR/HMWPE Cable

Description: 

  • KYNAR/HMWPE cathodic protection cable is made with a fluoropolymer insulation that has exceptional resistance to chemicals. KYNAR cable consists of a layer of insulation on the conductor, followed by a layer of HMWPE (high molecular weight polyethylene) insulation.
  • The KYNAR insulation is extremely resistant to chlorine, sulfuric acid and hydrochloric acid, which the HMWPE alone cannot withstand.
  • KYNAR/HMWPE cables are used as deep anode lead wires where chlorine and hydrogen gases are generated
  • The KYNAR cable can be directly installed in fresh, brackish or salt waters

Specifications: 

  • Conductors are stranded bare or tinned copper conductor conforms to ASTm spec B-3 and B-8
  • The primary insulation is a homogeneous 20 mil wall of natural PVDF fluoropolymer (KYNAR) shall be extruded around the conductor
  • The jacket is a 65 mil wall of high molecular weight polyethylene (HMWPE) shall be extruded around the primary insulation, and the jacket conforms to ASTm spec D 1248
  • Available in 2 through 8 AWG
  • Available in black or red
