Shielding characterization
Tape: Aluminium-polyester (AI/Pt) tape helical wrap with 100% coverage. Cables that are shielded only with tape  include a tinned-copper drain wire in conctact with the aluminium layer. 
Braid: Tinned-copper wire braid applied on the AI/Pt tape.

Installation

Assembly:
Minimum bend radius is 7xOD (unarmoured versions) and 12xOD (armoured versions).
Maximum pulling tension: 5daN/sq mm on copper conductors. Wire-armoured cables can withstand 10daN/sq mm on the armour wires.
Assembly temperature: 5ºC or higher.
