    XHHW, the acronym in the product’s name, stand for Cross-linked (insulation) High Heat resistant, Water resistant.  XHHW-2 Copper Wire consists of a single soft annealed copper conductor that is jacketed by a cross-linked polyethylene insulation.  The cross-linked insulation serves as a protective armor to shield the conductors from abrasion as well as from corrosive elements such as heat, dryness, and moisture.  The insulation also creates a smooth exterior texture so that when it comes time to install the cables, there is less friction, making the pulling process much easier.

    The conductors in XHHW-2 Copper Wire are made of soft annealed copper.  Copper offers many favorable characteristics; it is an extremely powerful electrical conductor and it has a proven ability to retain its stability over long periods of time.

    XHHW-2 Copper Wire is most commonly used in conduit or raceways for branch circuit wiring, services, and feeders.  Intermediate metal conduit, rigid metal conduit, flexible metal conduit, and polyvinyl chloride conduit (PVC) are the most common conduit types that are used with this cable.  The conductors can be used in wet and dry locations and can tolerate temperatures up to 90°C.
