Non-UL Extreme Temperature Liquid Tight Flexible Metal Conduit

Scope

This specification covers AFC Cable Systems®, Inc. Liquid-Tuff Non-UL® Extreme Temperature Liquidtight, Flexible Metal Conduit designed for use where operation at a high temperature is required. The product is appropriate for continuous use at 150°C (302°F) in a dry location, 70°C in a wet location or oily location. The Liquid-Tuff Extreme Temperature jacket material is halogen-free, meets UL® 94HB flammability requirements and has a low temperature brittle point of -60°C (-76°F).

The product is designed to be used for specific applications where Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL®) or other agency approvals are not required.

Description

  • High quality thermoplastic rubber jacket – Black
  • Ability to withstand extremes in temperature
  • Hot dipped zinc galvanized low carbon steel core
  • Halogen free
  • Oil and ozone resistant
  • Superior flexibility

Applications

  • Resists extremes in temperature
  • Very high operating temperatures
  • For location requiring halogen free conduits
  • Industrial applications
  • Indoor or outdoor locations
  • Provides mechanical protection for conductors

Construction

The Non-UL® EXTREME TEMPERATURE Liquidtight, Flexible Steel Conduit core shall be formed into a very flexible interlocked steel conduit from a zinc coated galvanized low carbon steel strip having a uniform width and thickness. The convolutions of the interlock shall be filed with a fibrous material designed to promote flexibility.

Jacket – TPR

A rugged moisture, oil and ozone resistant thermoplastic elastomer jacket shall be extruded directly over the interlocked very flexible steel core. The jacket is halogen free, has a UL® 94HB Flammability Rating and has a –60°C (–76°F) Low Temperature Brittle Point when tested in accordance with ASTM® D–746. 720-Hour Xenon-Arc sunlight/weather resistance – ASTM D2565 and ASTM G155.
