The Elastimold Shrink-Fit Cable Joint combines pre-molded splicing with the versatility of cold-shrink methods. The joint features a single-piece body that installs using a self-ejecting plastic support core, which can be removed by hand. A four-piece plastic support core reinforces the openings at both sides of the joint.
To create a splice, users insert a joint. After preparing and joining the cables together with a connector, users cut the strapping bands on the elastomer joint, which will contour itself around the splice as it pushes pieces of the plastic core out both sides. The joint covers many cable sizes and can be used with a standard aluminum or optional copper-compression splice.
