    Is this 0.75mm flex heat resistant? I don't think it is. Thanks

    That is 90C PVC heat resistant flex.
    As compared to the usual 70C PVC version.

    'V2' in the code is what designates it as 90C PVC.
    It's repeated as it's V2 for the insulation and V2 for the outer sheath.

    So it’s the code that denotes the temperature and whether it’s heat resistant or not?
