The AnodeFlex 1500 In-Line Splice Kit is designed to connect together two AnodeFlex 1500 anode
strands to a lead wire.
The heat-shrinkable tubing, sealant and accessories, have been specifically designed to environmentally protect the electrical connection in direct burial soil applications during the whole anode life.
The long term performance of AnodeFlex 1500 is conditional upon keeping the base copper conductor and electrical connection isolated from water. Only AnodeFlex splice kits are recommended for any connection to AnodeFlex 1500. The sealing performance has been tested for over 5 years of real time accelerated tests. Our field and lifetime experience with this product now exceeds 20 years.
The heat-shrinkable components are made of a radiation-crosslinked polymer. The cable and anode are wrapped with mastic, which flows when heated to ensure a very tight seal. When the sleeve is heated with a torch, or a heat gun, it shrinks tightly around the anode. Once installed, the In-Line Splice kit withstands the normal wear and tear of a construction environment and is extremely corrosion resistant. Impact, internal pressure and penetration resistance have all been tested following the telecommunication requirements for telephone cable splices. The installation is easy and can be completed in few minutes by a trained technician.
