Cerro Wire, 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 an improved, lower co-efficient of friction.
SLiPWire reduces the time, labor and cost for installation, eliminates the materials and labor needed for lubricating the wire, and avoids messy cleanup activities. Independent testing confirms that SLiPWire is equivalent to, or better than, competing products in the copper building wire industry.
Intertek Testing Services, an independent testing laboratory, observed a test pull conducted at Cerro Wire's Ogden, Utah manufacturing facility, comparing SLiPWire with competing prelubricated 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 every bit the equal if not better than other contenders in the industry.
