Polywater® AirRepair® Air Leak Repair System
A safe and convenient air leak sealant that helps extend the life of pressurized cable infrastructure.
Polywater® AirRepair® is a safe, fast, and effective air leak repair system that eliminates the need for messy and dangerous molten lead “hot wipe” repair of pressurized telephone cables and splices. It is a two-part, rapid-cure, resin air leak sealant system that stops air leaks in lead-sheathed cables and splice enclosures, polyethylene cable jackets, load coils, and end-plates. The cured resin of this pressurized cable leak repair system maintains a high level of adhesion and structural integrity to ensure a long-lasting, quality repair.
