PILC Leak Repair System to Stop Oil Seepage

  • Less Hazardous Method Kit eliminates hot lead wiping and heat sources in manhole.
  • Quick Plugging Action A fast-cure putty stops oil seepage.
  • Permanent Seal A quick-curing, 2-part paste overcoat forms a permanent seal.
  • Durable Finished seal is impervious to water, oil, and weather.
  • Fast System can plug and seal active leaks in minutes.

Polywater® PowerPatch® permanently seals punctures or cracks in hard-to-reach areas, such as crotches where multiple lead cables enter a splice.  It fixes active leaks fast and has flexible strength to absorb some movement when cables must be adjusted. The two-part PowerPatch resin and hardener don’t require a torch to cure, increasing safety in manhole or vault situations where torches are not allowed. The finished patch is resistant to transformer oil and has held oil pressures in excess of 20 psi in paper insulated lead cable systems.

Preparation is important, and the kit approach provides everything needed to do the job, although in instances of excessive oil leakage or dirt accumulation, separate scrubbing rags such as Grime-Away Cleaning Wipes are helpful.
