EEMUA 133 Lead covered armoured Power Cables to BS 5467, 600/1000V

Applications

These power and control cables are used for electricity supply in low voltage installation system. They are well adapted to underground use in industrial applications, in moist areas, where hydrocarbon and mechanical protections are needed and are protected against solvent penetration and corrosive attacks. The lead cover brings an enhanced resistance to aromatic hydrocarbons.
