Arctic Flex cable
Designed to with stand severe external temperatures remaining flexible at temperatures as low as -40°C. Arctic Grade PVC mains cords manufactured to BS7919 will remain flexible at temperatures down to minus 40°C making them particularly suitable for outdoor applications and for use where Arctic flex cable is required at sub zero temperatures. At normal temperatures the Arctic flex cable is very limp and flexible, offering some of the characteristics usually found in elastomeric cables.
