Filling compounds

Repsol’s 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 optical 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:

  1. CECA® range: mineral based
  2. CECAFLEX® and CECAGEL® ranges: mixed or semi-synthetic based
  3. 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).


230 liter 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.
