Flexible Metallic Conduit or Liquid-tight Flexible Metal Electrical Conduit (LFMC)

A flexible metallic conduit forms a hollow tube in which electrical wires are passed. It is highly recommended in dry areas. The Flexible Metallic Conduit also called greenfield of flex, does not maintain permanent bend and it can be used where EMT is impractical to use.

However, a liquid-tight flexible metal conduit is covered by a plastic waterproof coating. Its interior is very similar to the flexible metallic conduit. It is recommended for use in general wiring, wet or damp locations. It can also be used to direct burial; concrete embedded, and site lighting jobs.

Liquid-tight Flexible Nonmetallic Conduit

Liquid-tight Flexible Nonmetallic Conduit (LNFC) is another term for a number of flame resistant types of non-metallic tubing. This type of electrical conduit is recommended as a raceway for the installation of approved conductors with a nominal rating of 600 Volts or less for non-hazardous locations. The interiors of this electrical conduit may be corrugated or smooth.
