Okoguard is Okonite’s registered trade name for its exclusive medium
voltage grade ethylene-propylene rubber (EPR) based, thermosetting
compound, whose optimum balance of electrical and physical properties is
unequaled in other solid dielectrics. Okoguard insulation, with the
distinctive red color and a totally integrated EPR system, provides the
optimum balance for long, problem free service.
The Okolon jacket on this cable is a vulcanized chlorosulfonated
polyethylene based compound which is mechanically rugged, flame, and oil
Okoguard-Okolon cables are heavy duty nonshielded cables designed for
use at up to 5kV in wet or dry airport lighting applications. Okoguard-Okolon nonshielded
airport lighting cables are recommended for use in series lighting
circuits for runways and control systems. Cables can be installed in
metallic or non-metallic conduit, directly buried or
