    Yes, that's close to what it is, PVC coated MC. Actually is it XLPE conductor insulation (XHHW-2), then a PVC inner jacket (like Tray Cable), an aluminum armor like MC, then another PVC outer jacket. MC, even the versions with the outer jacket, doesn't have the inner PVC jacket, usually it just has a clear mylar sheath.

    Spelled "Teck" and most of what is sold is 90C so it is called "Teck 90". It's actually nice stuff to work with.
    Cool info, thanks.

      The hosers that picked the LV colors for Austin must have been from the Great White North.

      Supposedly, its because the city owned electrical utility delivers power "CBA".


      CANADIAN WIRE COLOR CODES FOR AC POWER
      In Canada, wire color coding standards are set by the Canadian Electric Code (CEC). The color code for AC power wiring is similar to the code used in the United States (and the same as Austin, TX):

      Phase 1 - Red
      Phase 2 - Black
      Phase 3 - Blue
      Neutral - White
      Ground - Green with Yellow Stripe



      Nice one. I didn't know this. Thank you

        We call it “heat-ex” because it is used often for 240 volt heaters
