  HydroBloc™ FPL or PLTC Unshielded  
         
   
  The Gepco® Brand HydroBloc™ multi-conductor unshielded speaker and control cables are ideal for permanent installation in wet locations. The conductors consist of stranded, bare copper conductors that are insulated with a PVC insulation compound. The outer jacket is extruded from a low-friction PVC that is easy to install and pull through conduit. These cables are available in 12 through 18 AWG. With advanced water-blocked construction, the HydroBloc line utilizes a two-ply water-blocking tape and water-swellable fillers to prevent transverse and longitudinal water ingress.
