What is SEOOW Portable Cord - 600V?

Many customer browsing our store here at Wire & Cable To Go stumble upon our SEOOW portable Cord and ask us the difference between this cord & our SOOW Portable cord.

The main difference is in the construction of the cord's jacket.

SEOOW- 600V stands for:

  • S - Service
  • E - Thermoplastic Elastomer
  • OO - Oil Resistant Insulation & Oil Resistant Jacket
  • W - Water & Weather Resistance

The Thermosplastic Elastomer jacket

The Thermosplastic Elastomer jacket is what sets this SEOOW apart from the SOOW portable cord.  This thermoplastic contains chemical resistance characteristics of PVC & flexible properties of rubber.  In more general terms the SEOOW is a high-quality flexible cord engineered with plastic characteristics and rubber jacketed material compared to an SOOW which is only made up of a rubber jacket.
