Abstract : Polyurethane adhesion to filled cable conductor insulation has been extensively studied in our Laboratories. As a result of these investigations, a novel proprietary resin has been developed which has excellent adhesion to grease contaminated conductor insulation. Our studies have also been concerned with the application of this resin to a factory and field method for pressure blocking filled cable. During the course of developed a filled cable pressure blocking technique some potential sources of air leakage were discovered which appear to be inherent in the basic cable construction. These findings have contributed to the development of a suitable method for blocking filled cable. (Author)
