The model PLH-R Preformed Loop is a prefabricated loop/lead-in assembly designed for use in direct burial applications. Each component of the PLH (loop cable, lead-in cable, and splice enclosure) is designed to maximize durability, minimize water penetration, and maintain a flexible form that is easy to install and handle. Wire insulation and cable jackets are constructed with the optimal thickness of Cross-linked Polyethylene (XLPE) necessary to ensure a long trouble free life. XLPE insulation provides excellent thermal, electrical, and physical properties and is recognized for its outstanding resistance to moisture and chemicals. The high visibility outer jacket is formulated from the Elexar 8451 Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) for superior abrasion resistance and excellent low temperature flexibility.
