LAPP’s ÖLFLEX HEAT 260 SC heat-resistant single-core industrial cable now carries UL AWM certification/cRU AWM I A/B. Ideal for applications subject to extreme temperatures, the ÖLFLEX HEAT 260 SC cable features polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) insulation to provide exceptional resistance to acids, alkalis, solvents, oils, other chemicals and ultraviolet (UV) exposure.

This rugged construction allows ÖLFLEX HEAT 260 SC to resist cracks during frequent ambient temperature fluctuations while exhibiting a wide temperature range of -190° C to +260° C, with a UL/CSA rating of up to 200° C. The cable also maintains high elasticity and tensile strength, with a minimum bending radius of 10 times outer diameter (OD) and a fixed installation bending radius of 4 times OD. Flame retardance ratings include:

- IEC and EN 60332-1-2
- UL Horizontal Flame Test
- CSA FT1

The silver-plated copper-stranded conductors come in 7-, 19- or 37-wire AWG sizes. In addition, ÖLFLEX HEAT 260 SC is now available with UL AWM certification (AWM Style 11486 acc. to UL 758), with cross sections from 28 to 12 AWG.

Thanks to the series’ small diameters, ÖLFLEX Heat 260 SC single-core cables are well-suited for space- and weight-constrained applications in mining, chemicals, refineries and metal fabrication industries as well as any environment with extreme temperature variations.
