Cable-filling compounds (filling and flooding) provide a watertight environment and protection against corrosion and potential dielectric problems, acting as a barrier against water that insulates the metal conductor wires of conventional copper telephone cables (JFTC) and the optical fibres of optic fibre cables (OFC) in the event of a fault in the cable covering or joints.
There are different ranges of filling products for telecommunication cables according to the nature of their composition:
- CECA® range: mineral based
- CECAFLEX® and CECAGEL® ranges: mixed or semi-synthetic based
- CECAGEL-T®: synthetic based
The CECA® and CECAFLEX® ranges are used in conventional copper cables (JFTC). The CECAGEL® rage for flooding and the special CECAGEL-T® range for filling are used in optic fibre cables (OFC).
210 litre palletised steel drums. 120 drums per lorry or 80 drums per 20 ft container for sea transport.
CECAGEL-T® is also available in rigid IBCs.
