Quadruplex Aluminum URD has a 600 volt rating and is designed to be used in secondary distribution circuits where you are installing in ducts or in a direct burial type of application. The maximum operating temperature is 90 degrees Celsius in both wet and dry conditions.
Insulation: Cross Linked Polyethylene (XLP)
Type Aluminum 8000 Series 600V URD cable is designed for use in secondary distribution circuits, where installed in duct or direct burial applications, where increased flexibility is needed. The conductors are rated Type USE-2. Maximum operating temperature is not to exceed 90°C in wet and dry locations. The voltage rating is 600 volts. As an option, this cable can be provided pre-pulled into duct.
Conductors: Compact/Compressed bare AA-8000 series aluminum alloy, Class B stranded per ASTM.
Insulation: Phase Conductors - Black XLPE insulation Neutral Conductors – Black XLPE with 3 extruded yellow stripes
Standards: ASTM B-800, ASTM B-801, UL 854 for Type USE-2.
Compact stranded AA-8000 series aluminum alloy conductors. Color-coded XHHW-2 insulation on individual conductors. Insulated conductors are cabled with the bare ground wire.

ACSR (aluminum conductor steel-reinforced) is a preferred choice for overhead power transmission and distribution projects. ACSR is widely used due to its low cost, dependability, and strength to weight ratio. The combined light weight and high conductivity of aluminum, combined with the strength of the steel core enables higher tensions, less sag, and longer spans than any typical alternative.
