FEP extruded binder supports buss wires and provides a stable surface for nichrome heating wire.

D) Nichrome Wire
The nickel chromium heating wire supplies constant uniform heat output.

E) Outer Sheath
This 32 mil Teflon® FEP flame retardant sheath protects the heating wire while providing a highly corrosion resistant barrier.

Cable Jacket Options

F) Metallic Overbraid
An optional tinned or nickel plated 34 AWG 85% coverage jacket for positive grounding in hazardous (classified) areas.
