Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Compounds
PVC compounds used for cords and cables with several grades of compounds are detailed in this standard
for both insulation and sheathing requirements. PVC compounds are thermoplastic by nature and
consequently are designed to operate within a prescribed temperature range. The majority of wiring
installations, however, use a general-purpose grade of PVC, which has a maximum operating temperature
of 70ºC (available in heat resisting PVC withstand to 90 o C) Sheath colours are normally grey, black or
white. Other colours can be provided on special order but experience has shown that for outdoor use
black has the highest resistance to direct sunlight, with other colours tending to fade in time under these
conditions.

PVC Power Cables (Armoured/Unarmoured)


Conductor : Copper or Aluminium
Applicable Standard : BS6004, BS6346, MS69, MS136, MS274
Voltage Rate : 300/500 & 450/750V
Range : Refer to Technical Data in following tables.

Notes : BS7671 Wiring Regulation – is currently adapted by Southern Cable in our product for new (harmonised)
requirement of color coding for insulation i.e : BROWN, BLACK, GREY, BLUE.
IEC60364 Electrical Installations for Buildings – is also standard to harmonize national wiring standards .

CROSSLINKED POLYETYLENE (XLPE) Compounds


XLPE have strong resistance to deformation even at high temperature. There are options for application
of heat, pressure or nature in the cross linking process. XLPE cables are suitable for transmission and
distribution lines because of its excellent electrical and physical properties. XLPE also has excellent
resistance to thermal deformation and aging property to permit the large carrying currents under
temperature of 90oC condition. XLPE cable is lighter in weight and smaller bending radius compare to
other kinds of cable, thus allowing for easy and reliable installation.

XLPE Power cables (Armoured/Unarmoured)


Conductor : Copper or Aluminium
Applicable Standards : BS 5467, IEC 60502 Part-1, MS2106, MS2107
