RELICON Relifix straight-through and branch gel joints: for quick and effortless application.
RELICON Relifix gel cable joints are suitable for cable connections indoors, outdoors and in conduits. They consist of a robust polypropylene sleeve pre-filled with RELICON gel. Relifix products comply with the highest electrical engineering requirements and provide mechanical protection and insulation in a single work step. The products comply with the major European standards EN 50393 (corresponding to DIN VDE 0278).
RELICON Religel two-component silicone gel.
RELICON Religel is a flexible two-component silicone gel that can be easily applied in individual quantities. It has superb insulating properties, good chemical resistance and excellent resistance to moisture.
Typical applications include encapsulationg electronic components or electrical connections subject to damp, humid or wet conditions. Mixing the non-toxic transparent resin and green-coloured hardener (A and B components at a ratio of 1:1) is simple and safe. The material’s excellent flow properties make it easy to pour. Religel cures fast and effective protection against moisture, dust and mechanical stress is achieved in less than ten minutes potting time.
Silicone-free hydrocarbon resins
For applications where silicone is undesirable, or where saltwater resistance is required, HellermannTyton also offers two-component non-toxic transparent gel products based on hydrocarbon resins:
Two-component gel RELICON KH 67
RELICON KH 67 (yellow translucent) is especially suitable for use with junction boxes in the low-voltage range, located in a humid area or in the ground. After curing, RELICON is characterised by its excellent resistance to moisture and very good insulating properties as well a good chemical resistance.
It is particularly suitable for filling of junction boxes.
Two-component gel RELICON KH 100
RELICON KH 100 (orange translucent) is supplied in a 250 ml cartridge. It is suitable for use with junction boxes in the low-voltage range, located in humid areas or in the ground. After curing, RELICON KH 100 is characterised by its excellent resistance to moisture and very good insulating properties as well good chemical resistance.
The supplied nozzle makes it easier to fill junction boxes in tight spaces.
Gel technology from RELICON by HellermannTyton: gel-filled cable joints for reliable cable connections under extreme conditions.
RELICON Reliseal gel-filled cable joints: for the toughest demands.
RELICON Reliseal gel cable joints are secure and robust partners for the most extreme conditions. The straight-through joints with a protection class of IP68 consist of a solid polypropylene shell (PP) filled with RELICON gel. These gel-filled cable joints are suitable for jointing on polymeric cables and wires made of PVC, XLPE, PE, EPR, etc. RELICON Reliseal fulfils the highest requirements for electrical installations and offers mechanical protection, insulation and sealing in one work step. Installers save time and require no special installation tools.
Suitable for application in low-voltage electrical networks, underground, submerged, outdoors, indoors and in wiring ducts to repair damaged cable exposed to water or vibration.
RELICON Relilight gel-filled cable joints : the compact protector.
RELICON Relilight joint sets are specially designed for lighting installations, with a specific focus on LED lighting.
They are tested according to DIN EN 60998-2-1:2004 and achieve the IP68 protection class. The sleeves are flame retardant according to UL94 V0. Depending on the model and connector type, Relilight is suitable for straight-through and branch Connections and for jointing on polymeric cables and wires made of PVC, XLPE, PE, EPR etc. The silicone-based RELICON gel pre-filled in the sleeves provides insulation, sealing and mechanical protection in one step and reduces the total cost of installation.
Ideal for application in low-voltage networks, for outdoor lighting installations, connections underground, submerged, outdoors, indoors and in wiring ducts.
RELICON Relifix gel-filled cable joints: the universal sleeve.
RELICON Relifix is quick and easy to install. The sleeves are provided with a film hinge and are made from thick-walled and impact resistant polypropylene (PP). The RELICON gel in the shells insulates and seals the connection entirely. Depending on the type of connector, Relifix can be used universally for straight-through and/or branch joints on polymeric cables and wires made of PVC, XLPE, PE, EPR etc.
For application in low-voltage networks underground, submerged (to 1.3 m), outdoors, indoors and in wiring ducts. A separate strain relief accessory is available where required, or alternatively, Reliseal or Relilight can be installed.
