Construction

The LIQUID-TUFF™ LSZH Liquidtight Flexible Metal Conduit shall be formed from zinc coated galvanized low carbon steel strip having a uniform width and thickness. There shall be a continuous bonding strip built into the conduit core for the 3/8 through 11⁄4 trade sizes. The construction shall be in accordance with the UL 360 Standard. The Low Smoke Zero Halogen designation shall be based upon testing to ASTM® 162 – Flame Spread Index, ASTM® E662 – Smoke Density Generation and Bombardier SMP-800C – Toxic Gas Generation. The finished LIQUID-TUFF™ LSZH Liquidtight Flexible Metal Conduit dimensions shall be in accordance with Table 5.1 of UL 360

Jacket – TPU

A rugged low-smoke, moisture, oil, sunlight resistant and flame retardant thermoplastic polyurethane jacket shall be applied directly over the flexible metal conduit. The physical properties of the jacket material shall comply with the UL 360 Standard. The Low Smoke Zero Halogen jacket shall be tested to and comply with ASTM® 162 – Flame Spread Index, ASTM® E662 – Smoke Density Generation and Bombardier SMP-800C – Toxic Gas Generation. The test results are summarized in Table 1. Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) does not List any manufacturers jacket compound as being low smoke zero halogen. The jacket wall thickness shall be in accordance with Table 4.1 of UL 360.
