Can Powerpact B circuit breakers be 100% rated?

Product Line:
Powerpact B Breakers

Resolution:
All standard Powerpact B-frame circuit breakers are standard (80%) rated.  
Unit-mounted 15A to 60A breakers may be ordered with UL and CSA certified 100% ratings by adding a "C" suffix to the catalog number. I-Line breakers and higher ampere breakers are not available with 100% ratings.
Markings on the circuit breaker indicate the minimum enclosure size and ventilation required.
They also require the use of 90°C rated wire which must be sized according to the ampacities of the 75°C wire column in the NEC.
