    When it comes to the "-2" that's on all our wire. VW-1 And other markings like FT4 and so on has nothing to do with "-2" technically. For example, XHHW-2 doesn't have a VW-1 unless it's ordered with it...and most don't need VW-1...so why pay for it. As a manufacturer we are not going to use optional additives if they are not required....only when requested.

    OP's question was if they make -2 conductors anymore. You saying all conductors from your company are -2 rated? OP must not be buying any of your product if so.

    Not a dig, simply stated your company only makes -2 conductors and OP doesn't have -2 conductors, which simply means one of your competitors must be making non -2 conductors.

    You are the one that went on about other technicalities that may make a difference in cost, then said all your conductors are -2 rated anyway, which is all OP asked about.

    I was reading this last night, So this morning I looked at are # 10 wire by cerrowire it's marked for THHN/THWN-2
