Categories: ,

The Rapid Joint is a Radial closing gel pre-filled joint for extruded insulation cables up to 1 kV

Primary insulation, consisting of a cross-linked polymer gel, and the exceptionally robust insulating plastic casing render Class 2 joints in accordance with the definitions contained in standard CEI 64-8. The joint has been tested in accordance with the main international specifications, with repeated flexing and torsion tests and immersion in water, and has been declared as conforming to the mechanical, electrical and sealing specifications required for plastic cable accessories. The joint and its components have an unlimited shelf life, are chemically inert and therefore completely safe. Conductor connections are re-enterable even after long periods of operation. Packaged with self-extinguishing material, flame retardant, for cables at 90°C working temperature. The radial closing system of the Rapid Joint facilitates joint application, making them re-enterable only by means of a tool.
