Hi All.

I’ve got 20m of 10mm SWA I’m wanting to use but I’ve noticed the outer earring strands and corroding. I’ve cut back a meter and it’s the same. Is it still useable? Thanks.

How many cores does it have?

How rusty is it?

What did you want to use it for?
3 core. Slight rust, more white oxidisation tbh. Want to run it to a shed. It’s been used before, pulled up and then sat in storage for 2 years. I know the best think to do is to replace it but cost these days are just crazy.
