Cerro Wire LLC, a manufacturer of copper electrical building wire and cable, now offers SLiPWire, a thermoplastic heat-resistant nylon-coated (THHN) cable jacketed with a self-lubricating polymer that provides “an improved, lower co-efficient of friction.” It claims to reduce the time, labour and cost for installation, eliminate the materials and labour needed for lubricating the wire, and avoid messy clean-up activities. According to Cerro, independent testing confirms that SLiPWire is equivalent to, or better than, competing products in the copper building wire industry.
