    So it's fair to say the cables insulation is covered with, er, insulation.

    Conductors and insulators are mutually exclusive (notwithstanding the fact that nothing is a pure conductor or a pure insulator).

    It would be a conductive SHEATH for mechanical protection not conductive insulation.

    Aye so that'll be insulation then. I'm glad we agree at last.

    I am not compelled to offer advice in the manner in which you decide. I have given plenty of helpful information on this thread - unlike you.

    I have been following this argument with some interest. As an amateur can I make the following observation, with some trepidation!

    Given that the standard for T and E specifies a minimum resistance for the sheath (unless I am mistaken) is it not logical to describe the sheath as having insulative properties?

    As I say, I make the observation with temerity, not wishing to poor petrol on the fire (if indeed it is possible to fan the flames any higher).

    No resistance is defined by the Standard, much less the same as the insulation.

    I am from Ireland and superior to you in every way so it is clear that you are intimidated by that.

    I am mistaken then, excellent; it means I have learnt something today.

    No. I am superior for a whole host of reasons. Being Irish is just another strength. I know many good people from England too, though you won't find most of them on this forum.

    Think it might be an idea if everyone posting on this thread double checked any current regs or standards they are quoting to insulate themselves from attack to be sure,to be sure.

    An Englishman, a Scotsman and an Irishman go into the wholesalers to buy some cable ....

    The Englishman says..
    5 metres each of 16mm double insulated tails please me old mucker.

    The Scotsman says
    Any deals on 5 metres of 16mm double insulated tails ...if not.... I'm doomed.

    The Irish bloke from Norn Iron starts a fight about linguistics and the vernacular.

    :D
