It is NEC article 400 stuff. Flexible cords and cables. The W indicates it can be wet.Chart 400.4 indicates it is for up to 600 volts. The insulation is thermoset and not thermoplastic . The outer jacket is probably a little stiffer than black rubber SJ cords but that is likley why it is submerjable. A trade name is hard service cord. Like all things in the codebook you must chase down a few other sections to assure you have the proper usage but the chart is 400.4 . Probably a good choice for the use the original poster is intending.[ Yeah I know I can't spell submersible or whatever]

Hey Tom.

Not an ignorant question. SOW cable is not what you tie a hog with :) .

It is cable with stranded copper conductors jacketed with rubber compound encased with a high quality rubber jacket which is black (at least all I have bought).

It is waterproof and approved for wet locations.

I use it where there is movement involved with cabling i.e. pan and tilt cameras.

It is usually rated for a wide temperature range -40 to 90 degrees C. and remains flexible.

It makes great extension cords.
