Splice Kits

Cathodic Protection Splice Kits

Features

  • Strong clear plastic mould body with Snaplock connection for tight seal
  • Stepped cable entry cut-off points for all cable diameters
  • Large molded shell enables crimp or split bolt / line tap connectors to be used
  • Resin 2-year shelf life

Applications

  • Ideal for single core unarmoured Tee or Branch jointing rated up to 1kV, above or below ground. To suitmain cable single core max size up to 95 sq mm. Branch single core up to 35 sq mm.
  • Used on Cathodic Protection applications including pipelines, tanks and buried structure

Resin Sealing Compound

  • High quality resin sealing compound has a high resistance to moisture absorption, is mixed in a clear packand stored in an aluminum protective bag
  • The long-term electrical properties of the resin sealing compound result in a more reliable connectionwithout any associated maintenance costs.
  • Resin sealing compound is suitable for all climate conditions.

Quality

  • Designed to meet the requirements of BS 7888:1998.

Features

  • The pack has been specifically designed and fabricated to offer the user a quick, clean and efficientmethod of mixing and pouring
  • The pack consists of a two part polyurethane resin correctly proportioned into pouches separated by adivider. The user simply breaks the divider, amalgamates the two components and pours.
  • Dual system of packaging ensures that the pack is sealed against the atmosphere
  • The outer aluminum packaging provides added protection against the atmosphere to support two-year shelf life
  • The inner transparent plastic packaging provides a visible reference for the user when mixing
  • During mixing the user does not come into contact with the resin but gloves are provided for extra safety
  • Each pack has its own unique batch number and use by date to provide an easy reference for the user
  • Full safety labeling
  • Controlled curing temperature designed to be compatible with PVC, XLPE, EPR, HMWPE and other cableinsulations
  • Odor-free

Detailed storage instructions

  • No special labeling required for transportation by road, sea or air.

Designed to meet requirements of BS EN 50393
