Vulcanized Cable Repairs

 The ideal solution to repair a cable type SHD-GC is a repair that leaves the cable jacket and splice with the same properties and characteristics as previous to the repair.  In this manner, the vulcanized cable repair is the best option, giving the splice better mechanical resistance (traction and abrasion), resistance to water and humidity, resistance to extreme heat and cold outdoor temperature, resistance to oxidation caused by contact with oil and grease, as well as flame resistance. 

*All North American professional cable repair services use vulcanized cable repair systems
