Filoform’s Cold End Caps environmentally seal and mechanically protect exposed cable ends using no tools, mastics or tapes. They are close-ended, tubular rubber sleeves that are factory expanded and loaded onto a removable core. When positioned over the end of a cable, or other cylindrical object, the core is removed to provide a reliable seal which protects your cable ends from environmental damage. They are easily installed and cleanly removable. Whether in transit from the manufacturer, stored in the cable yard, or in process in a trench, your cable ends are protected from exposure to moisture, contamination and corrosion.
All Filoshrink End Caps and Filoshrink EPDM Tubes have a 5-year shelf life, provided they are stored according to the manufacturers recommended conditions of storage.
