Hendrix Wire & Cable

May 2014, Vol. 69 No. 5

Hendrix/Kerite Cable (The Marmon Group), a premier provider of high-quality underground power distribution products, announces its DUAL BLOCK product.

This offering provides a dual water blocking capability on Hendrix primary underground cable.

Hendrix DUAL BLOCK helps prevent water entering the cable core that can lead to premature failure. A fill compound is continuously applied into the conductor interstices which helps prevent longitudinal water migration. Then a water-swellable powder is applied under the polyethylene jacket. This prevents water from migrating along the neutral wires, under the jacket. Taken together, these two applications provide a reliable barrier that prevents water from entering the cable core.

DUAL BLOCK is an option for all stranded conductor Hendrix cables. 603.673.2040, hendrix-wc.com
