Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quality NOT good I have bought the product many times before and the cable has been fine but yesterday 4th July I picked it up from my local store and I found that it is very very difficult to strip the grey insulation off the cores, First of all I tried to use my CK wire strippers and yes it split the insulation but I could not slide the insulation off when I used a stanley knife I could hardly peel the insulation off, I think there maybe a batch that has slipped through quality control

Plasticiser migration from PVC

Can plasticiser migration occur from the PVC in this cable, when in contact with EPS Expanded polystyrene?
Asked by: qore5
We do not recommend installing any PVC cable product in contact with expanded polystyrene foam. It will cause a reaction which will result in migration of the plasticiser which will harden the sheath and make the cable more rigid and brittle. Separating the cables from the polystyrene would stop the reaction. Capping of some sort would help. In practical terms, it depends on how the cables are installed and fixed. Prysmian cables with low smoke sheaths or insulation, for example 6242B will not react with polystyrene. Screwfix do sell this alternative product.

What size of clips do I need to fasten this onto the wall or wood ?

Asked by: Paul1978lo8655
It should be noted that any support fixings used to support the cable must not lead to premature collapse of the cable in a fire, regardless of whether the cable itself is fire resistant or not. Clause 521.10.202 in BS7671 refers. We do not provide guidance on the most suitable clips to use for the twin and earth as we do not supply these, but would advise the cable is 5.3mm x 9.9mm in dimension. The clips need to be either steel or copper in construction

could this cable run along a fence in ducting ?

Asked by: Koipond1
Thank you for contacting Prysmian Group UK Technical Support. It is the responsibility of the system designer to select the most appropriate cable for the installation, application and environment intended. We are not system designers and cannot offer assistance in this area. We recommend that you consult a qualified electrician and or consult BS7671 for guidance. However, 6242Y cables are not suitable for installation outside. Thank you Kind regards Technical Support

I bought this cable (on the advice at my local screwfix) to bury in the garden to supply power to my hut, can anyone confirm that this is the correct cable?

Asked by: Fangy
Definitely not, use SWA and get an electrician to do it for you.
