FiloSlim LV cable jointing system - Cable Sheath Repair

Filoform (Cable Sheath Repair) News and PR from Filoform (Cable Sheath Repair) - Published 01 July 2020 The FILOSLIM Sheath Repair Kit utilizes a totally enclosed mix-and-pour polyurethane resin technology, designed for use as a permanent repair of damaged cable sheaths.
The combination of the Filoform 3D Gauze and the FILOSLIM Injection Resin, enables a quick and easy method of sealing and protecting damaged areas; whilst the hydrocarbon resistant outer sealing tape offers protection in the tough conditions found in direct buried and freestanding applications.

Cables can be buried immediately after the pouring of the resin, and full cure is achieved after one hour. This makes it a quick and reliable alternative to heatshrink repair sleeves
but with the added mechanical protection of a hard curing resin. This lends itself to applications where there is a probability or risk of moisture ingress or flooding.

The FILOSLIM LV cable jointing system is approved in accordance with NEN EN 50393 and IEC 60455-3-8:2013

The FiloSlim cable repair set contains two pieces of each part:

When using one 3D gauze mat it is suitable for cables with a max. diameter of 90mm.
