The company’s primary, underground cable now features Dual Block water blocking capability. Dual Block comprises a fill compound that is continuously applied into the conductor interstices to prevent longitudinal water migration. Then, a water-swellable powder is applied under the polyethylene jacket, preventing water from migrating along the neutral wires under the jacket. Together, these applications provide a barrier that prevents water from entering the cable core. In addition, Dual Block is an option for the company’s stranded conductor cables.
