NIGERCHIN was incorporated in 1970 as the pioneer manufacturer of electric cables and conductors in Nigeria.
A partnership with Canada Wire and Cable International (CWI), then, a Canadian company with over 75 years experience in cable designed, engineering and manufacture, gave Nigerchin relevant technology, experience and facilities for product and manpower development.
Over time, Nigerchin has built on this foundation, competency for upgrading, producing and certifying quality products that meet international requirements in the electrical power industry and installations.
4mm 4 Core Armoured Cable is a form of electrical cable that has the ability to supply mains electrical power to devices and networks. The cable also has more domestic uses such as being used to supply mains electricity to devices such as outdoor buildings, for example, garden sheds or out-houses, as well as being suitable for outdoor lighting circuits such as patio and decking lights.
The cable construction is identified by plain annealed stranded copper being used for the conductors/cores, PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) being used for the bedding and sheathing, cross-linked polyethylene being used for the insulation and steel wire being used for the armour.
Due to the steel wire armour that is within the cable protecting the insulating layers beneath, it is also used to give the cable higher pulling loads, meaning it can take the strain of being dispensed from cable drums when delivered to a building/construction site etc. The steel wire armour can also be used as a CPC (Circuit Protective Conductor) or ‘natural earth’ meaning that the armour itself will earth the cable.
