Answer

Yes. This is the intended use for stranded wiring, in flex applications. The black jacket resists scuffing and cutting as well as providing water resistance to 300v. You will want a NEMA 5-20 plug and socket, also available at Home Depot.

No to me it sounds like this is going to be a perminat thing and this cable is not rated to being a perminat house wiring. perminat house wiring is a solid wire were this is stranded. this type of wire is for powering tools at a job sight. also this wire in your home/buissnes set up as a perminat wiring can be a reason for your inchuance company to void your policie if your house / buissnes burns down since this cable is not code for perminat use. if you use this cable as an extension cord for temporary use layed acrost the floor NOT atached to ANYTHING so it can be coiled up at the end of the day then it could be safe but in your case having it fixed you have just made it perminat wiring and is classifide as perminat wiring. if you do use the wire the way you inteded and a osha inspector sees it stapled or running through a wall they are alowed to fine you for it and fines change depending on were you live. Also they will tell you to rip the wiring down and re do it to be code.

Incorrect Rating
Although 12 gauge wire is rated for 25A, NEC code only allows this wire to be used for 20A circuits or lower. The only exception would be when derating is a factor. In that situation you could de rate based on the maximum ampacity of the wire. At that point, with wire insulation type taken into account, you could determine the full load ampere rating of the wire for derating to determine proper breaker size. See NEC Article 310.15(B)(16).

SOOJ stranded wire is flexible and protected. I used this to make a switched power cord for a compressor. The 12/3 cord is heavy enough for the 20A load and yet still flexible. Good stuff where 12/2 with ground THHN solid wire is too stiff or would fail from repeated flexing.
