Does anyone know the reason and meaning behind the "with and without jacket" for table 6 of the C.E.C. part 1?

I was told that some RW conductors were available with a jacket around the insulation, making the wire bigger in size (for a given AWG conductor size). Hence requiring more space in the conduit. Although I have worked with unjacketed conductors, I have never seen a jacketed conductor. I was told "the difference is obvious. Does anyone have a photo of a jacketed conductor

I was under the impression that it was some-what thinner due to the nylon "jacket", I'm not sure if that is what they are stipulating? This nylon coating, from what I am told is for anti-abrasion. Is this the "jacket" that Table 6 is refering to?

The dimensions given in table 10 indicate thicker. (note asterexes and daggers). What does the jacket look like? What is it made out of? Why would you use a jacketed conductor? I don't know!!! If someone out there knows, please help?

I remember a sample in school.
It was just a layer of cellophane on the outside of the insulation, similar to the one that comes around Teck.
