Twisted FEP Insulated Cable – TEW&C TEX/TW


  • Continuous use up to 400F (200C)
  • Low Coefficient of Friction
  • Excellent Chemical Resistance
  • Excellent Electrical Properties
  • Flame Retardant
  • Passes IEEE 383 Flame Test
  • Passes VW-1 Flame Test
  • FDA Approved for use around food

FEP is an extruded fluoropolymer suitable for use up to 400 F (200C), and is flame retardant and non-propagating in fire conditions. Conductors are extruded with FEP and twisted in a 1-1/2″ to 2-1/2″ lay. This is a non-jacketed construction. The product is moisture/chemical resistant and provides an economic alternative with smaller OD profile. This construction also provides all the benefits of FEP at an economical price point.
