I think the OP wants to know dates when certain types of cables were commonly installed? But I could be guessing wrongly. If this is the case, I think somewhere there is a posting listing these.

Virgil the reason for his witty comment is your basic English is hard to work out i assume you wish to know when a given type of cable began manufacturing and when 'if it has' ended.
The examples you gave are hard to decipher but i will try ....

Red and black cores were discontinued about 2008 but were always the colour code before that.

T&E grey or white? Do you mean PVC, tough rubber, lead????
I can only agree with other posts in that its difficult to clarify exactly what info your after as you post is very hard to fathom.

Read this link i think it might help, if not please re-word your post so its more understandable.

Read my previous post and follow the link, the outer sheath grey and white colour code is consistant with pvc and ever since its introduction they are stil available till today, with regards to alluminuim conductors they are still available and often used by DNO this is the confusion you are asking when things were phased out but the examples you give are all still commonly in use; if not domestic then in other parts of the industry.
You've answered your owed query on the core colour code, but can you be more specific
E.g. Domestic, industrial, power and lighting cables, swa, micc........ the make up and scope of cables is extensive over the various area's of the industry and to answer it all would be a massive task in deed.

Please narrow it down if the link wasn't what you were after.. hopefully this isn't homework as we are here to help but not to cheat you through your education.

Also for some strange reason a lot of the white sheathed T&E seems to originate from the diy sheds,remember seeing it years back and wondering what was going on as all the stuff from the wholesalers was grey sheath yet the stuff in the sheds had white sheath.Thinking back maybe it was a clever thing on someones part so when a proper spark turned up at a domestic it gave him advanced warning that bob from the pub had done work on the install previously.:wink_smile:

Indeed phil. I think there's a section in my loft that the previous owner put in. I would guess it was done some time in the 80's.
