CELEC 1Li - compound for external protection of cables
Metal grease used as thermal insulation and as an anti-corrosion and anti-wear agent, designed for cold application. Formulated to meet the specification UNE EN 50326 type A.
The compounds of the CELEC® range are used for the protection of low-, medium- and high-voltage electrical cables. They effectively delay the attacks of atmospheric agents suffered by cables exposed to the outdoors, preventing power losses.
These compounds are petrolatum-type (PJ, petroleum jellies) mineral-based compounds made largely from products derived from petroleum and that act as electrical protection, anti-corrosion and anti-wear agents on metallic conductors exposed to the elements. They are therefore subjected to various climatic tests in the laboratory, following the strictest international standards, in order to check their capacity as anti-corrosive agents under different conditions, such as saline and acidic environments, and at different temperatures and humidities.
In these compounds, the increase of the dielectric constant with temperature is moderate, never exceeding 2.3 at 23ºC.
Filling compounds for conventional telephone cables, CECAFLEX range:
The CECAFLEX range is composed of a semi-synthetic base, manufactured based on waxes derived from petroleum, mineral oils and hydrogenated thermoplastic polymers.
This range of compounds has been designed for cable manufacturers that require white, non-sticky products that are easy to clean and have a dense appearance, which are the most suitable products for reducing the time taken to install the cables during construction by using clean products. They comply with the REA standard and are designed especially for the American market.
They are characterised by their excellent flexibility at low temperatures and reduced thermal contraction.
Filling compounds for optical fibre cables, CECAGEL-T® range:
The compounds in the CECAGEL-T® range are transparent, non-Newtonian (thixotropic) filling gels for optical fibre cables (OFCs).
The CECAGEL-T® range represents cutting-edge technology in filling products. They are made entirely from synthetic bases with a high degree of purity that provide a highly water-resistant gel structure. This offers characteristics of transparency and thermal stability suitable for optical fibre cables.
Due to their special characteristics, they can be applied in cool conditions (25ºC) by simple pumping, such that when the filling settles inside the cable, it gels to form an effective protective barrier. These compounds also deliver excellent behaviour at low temperatures, their penetration remaining practically unchanged and maintaining sufficient fluidity for it to be possible to measure their viscosity, such that they facilitate the correct positioning of the small optical fibres, avoiding dangerous micro-folds.
Compounds in the CECAGEL-T® range are compatible with primary and secondary covers usually used for covering optical fibre cables, such as PVC, nylon and polyethylene, among others.
