GUROFLEX is an environmentally friendly, non-toxic and non-hazardous casting material for 1kV cable joints. It's easy to handle (no special protective measures are required to handle it) and is a cold casting material based on hydrocarbons.
Hydrocarbon resins are generally known for their low water absorption, excellent electrical insulation properties and high elasticity over a wide temperature range without splitting and cracking. Due to its elasticity, it is well-suited to accommodate thermal expansion of insulated cables, thereby preventing tears, breaks and cracks that could permit water ingress. It is an excellent insulating material with water-repellent properties. It covers and adheres to metal components and protects them from corrosion.

GUROFLEX is prepared immediately before casting. The two components are mixed together in a double chamber bag and then the cross-linking process starts. Compared with other resin types, GUROFLEX is easy to process and generates no heat during curing. Furthermore, GUROFLEX is resistant to low temperatures as low as -20°C. Processing is possible at temperatures as low as -10°C.

GUROFLEX is suited for use in all cable joint systems with robust closures up to 1kV. It is qualified according to CENELEC HD 623. It is suitable for filled XLPE, PE, PVC and paper-insulated cables. GUROFLEX is available in double chamber bags and tins.
