International Color Code(ICC) vs. North American Color Code(NACC)


For the majority of our customers, the color code used for the cordage is negligible. However, for OEM customers, or customers dealing with government installations or projects that have highly specified cords the color code used will be important to establish. Our standard color code for our Cut/ Remove of Outer Jacket/ Strip Conductor Job is North American Color Code (NACC).
