agree, probably cost like everything these days, the csa of a cpc is smaller than the L&N so it might be a major problem when its being manufactured or something, but even then i will bet its down to £££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££.

Also under cable fault conditions only one insulation layer to pass through from live or neutral.

Another good point, but is this the reason why the cable makers leave it bare?

because it would make the cable bigger in diameter maybe !

hi there

in the production process i believe that it is used to loosely pull they cables through a continuous process and is guided on the moulding press.:)

Someone of course may know different:p

Im going with fault conditions, if the line insulation breaks down (nail or were and tear) then the fault has a better way of showing up??

Ease of stripping the cable is my guess....
