transparent mould shelves for simple and easy handling. Distances inside the body can be
checked easily. All necessary dimensions, like application range, cable preparation are given
in the detailed instruction.
The three foam sealing elements can be adapted to the required cable diameter by removing
the pre-cut adapter rings.
The resin 40 is delivered in two chamber bag with integrated spout and aluminium Guard
Bag for protection against humidity.
The re-openable seam and integrated spout with a membrane does provide a Closed, Mixing
