Exane® 1068A-600V

600 Volt, AAR S-501/RP-585, (XLPO), Spec. DAA1068A

Scope

Exane®-1068A transit wire is a tough, flame retardant construction ideally suited for rugged transportation industry applications. It has a high temperature rating yet will not crack at temperatures down to –55°C. Exane® transit wire has much better resistance to cutthrough, crush, and scrape abrasion than rubber, EPR, Neoprene and Hypalon. It is also more flexible and has better overload characteristics than fluoropolymers. Exane® transit wire has good moisture and oil resistance, excellent fire resistance, and low smoke and acid gas generation characteristics.

Features

• Wide temperature range –55°C to 110°C*
• Thermoset Insulation
• Superior mechanical properties
• Flexible construction
• Flame retardant
