    Applications: Type XHHW-2 conductors are primarily used in conduit or recognized raceways for services, feeders, and branch circuit wiring as specified in the National Electrical Code 1 . XHHW-2 conductors may be used in wet or dry locations at temperatures not to exceed 90°C. Voltage rating for XHHW-2 conductors is 600 volts.

    Specifications: Type XHHW-2 conductors meet or exceed UL Standard 44, Federal Specification A-A-59544, and requirements of the National Electrical Code.

    Type XHHW-2 meets and exceeds all construction requirements of ICEA S-95-658 (NEMA WC 70) - Nonshielded 0 - 2 kV Cables, with testing frequencies based on UL requirements.

    Construction: Type XHHW-2 aluminum conductors are AlumaFlex TM AA-8000 series aluminum alloy, compact stranded. Insulation is an abrasion, moisture and heat resistant black cross-linked polyethylene. Conductor sizes AWG 2 and larger listed and marked sunlight resistant in black only. Not CT rated.

    XHHW has become a preferred choice among buyers when it comes to cables for massive projects, and generally the preference is to buy an aluminum XHHW cable rather than the copper one. While there is nothing wrong in buying XHHW copper cables, most people buy aluminum chiefly because it is cheaper. The demand for aluminum cables, especially those which come with the XHHW stamp, are widely used for construction almost everywhere. Also, these cables are so robust that they are used in heavy construction and heavy industrial applications. In fact, statistics show that many contractors lean towards the aluminum cables rather than copper ones.
