Has anyone used their Simpull THHN yet? I watched the video a few weeks ago and actually got to work with it yesterday. It's really nice stuff and it does what they say it does; pull without the need for cable pulling lubricants. It surely goes against everything that I have ever learned, that's for sure.
The project that I was on was one where four sets of 750's were being pulled. It wasn't a terribly complicated pull (about 250' with only two 90's and a 45), but it flew right in. What's really nice about Simpull is that it comes in all standard colors, so there's no more taping for identification, which saves a lot of time and reduces the risk of crossing phases to zero.
I sure do like it. I wonder if it's more expensive than traditional black THHN?
ED: No I have not used it. A side note on this thou.... The isulation identification on the jacket created a situation. THe 'SimPull THHN' is nice and clear and big; but I had to find the THWN designation! (Underground run)
Factory eng said..'it's on the back side'. I went back to the job, and looked again; didn't see it. Looked one more time...YES, it's there....faint ink jet dot type print. That was one happy EC.
BTW, I thought it was odd that Southwire would make a straight THHN insulation, but I have to see the THWN.
