The RG402 is a semi-rigid cable. This type of coaxial cable are characterized by a rigid outer conductor. This cable relates to a tinned copper pipe.
Semi-rigid cables can be bent only once, after that it can not be changed without any harm.
Application: In the internal wiring of radio frequency equipment and radio applications

Temperature range - 55°C to +125°C

Semi rigid coaxial cables are rigid coaxial cables, the form of which rather reminds of pipes.
The inner conductor consists of a solid copper wire (tinned or silver-plated). The advantage of a semi rigid coaxial cable is that the leak radiation and absorption, especially at higher frequencies (in GHz range), is lower than in a conventional coaxial cable. The range is limited to applications where no mechanical movement of the coaxial cable is necessary, such as wiring in equipment or fixed installation.
Such cables for applications are used up to 10 GHz and higher, depending on the used cable.
