• Aluminum Alumaflex Type MC Jacketed AL THHN Conductors

    Product Details

    Electricians, inspectors and engineers have come to love aluminum conductors thanks to their many advantages. They are not just considered safe and effective for both business and residential buildings, they are generally low cost as compared to other conductors in the market. A great conductor is one that is light weight, has high tensile strength and also with the highest conductivity so as to reduce electrical losses during long transmission. All these descriptions properly fit the ALUMINUM ALUMAFLEX TYPE MC JACKETED AL THHN CONDUCTORS. These kinds of conductors are appropriate for signal circuits, power, lighting control and any such like needs.

    The high use and demand came in as a response to the shortage of copper, which was a commonly used conductor back in the days.To properly fit all your needs, the Alumaflex phase conductors come in a number of sizes, all with the right ability to function well.

    Features of the Alumaflex type MC conductors
    • These kinds of conductors have a MC PVC jacket that is resistant to flame as well as sunlight; yet another great
        reason as to why they are great for business and residential buildings.
    • Another feature making the MC conductors to stand out is their ability to withstand high degrees of heat. This
       makes them the ideal cables when shopping for cables which can offer distribution via concrete.
    • The MC PVC jacket also comes in handy to protect the cables from any other kind of damage that may make
       the cable fail to perform.
    • The Alumaflex conductors comprise of single, insulated and compact stranded conductors.
    • It also has a special bare grounding conductor which acts as the ground making the cable totally safe.
    • The conductor can transmit up to 600 volts

    Applications of the Type MC Conductors
    • The MC cables are ideal for the following functions:
    • Exposed or hidden installations
    • Cable tray installations as well as approved raceways
    • Theaters that measure per NEC 520.5 and assembly places per NEC 518.4
    • During the distribution of power in residential, institutional, industrial and commercial buildings.
    • Signal circuits, lighting, control and power circuits that are either embedded in plaster
    • Floors that are under raised for IT equipment conductors as well as cables per NEC 645.5 (D) and 645.5(D)
    • Applications that need direct burial such as installation in concrete, strong chlorides, vapors of chlorine or
       hydrochloric acids and caustic alkalis.

    Some great advantages that come with Type MC Conductors are that they are very easy to install and they cause fewer injuries because they are made with state of the art technology. The Type MC conductors also have higher margins as compared to other kinds of conductors.

    Indeed there have been a number of myths, opinions and beliefs surrounding the use of aluminum conductors with regards to whether or not they should be used in some applications. However, research has proven that they are totally safe for use.
