MATCOR Power Cable –
Cathodic Protection, Copper Conductor

The quality of the power cable is instrumental to any cathodic protection system.  Power Cable used for cathodic protection systems must be highly corrosion resistant and capable of withstanding the rigors of the environments to which they are exposed.

MATCOR Power Cable, which is available in many different sizes as well as jacket compositions, provides the dependable results that you demand.

Our High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (HMWPE) is suitable for most environments.  In high chlorine generation environments however, we recommend our KYNAR/HMWPE or HALAR/HMWPE cables which are dual extruded highly chlorine resistant power cables.  MATCOR also offers other Special Order Cables as listed below:
