  • Excellent impact and abrasion resistance
  • Excellent environmental crack and UV resistance
  • Hot melt ensures an excellent water seal
  • High electrical insulation properties
  • Colour – Black
  • Minimum shrink temperature 120°C
  • ALVSJ – Submersible
  • ALVJB – Budget (no roll springs and braid)

 

Applications

  • Voltage Range – 600/1000V
  • Easy and quick installation
  • Normal and submersible joints
  • Suitable for 2 to 4 core PVC SWA cables
