Non-Conductive Sanding Cloth for Medium & High Voltage Cable Prep
SpliceMaster® 120-grit, non-conductive, aluminum oxide sandpaper rolls are for removing semi-con shield residue, jacket polymers, and other contaminating materials from electrical cable insulation during splicing. Deposits can lead to tracking or arcing and must be removed prior to splicing electrical cable.
Emery cloth and standard store-bought sandpapers and abrasives can leave conductive grit residues that could lead to cable failure and hazardous conditions. Only non-conductive sanding materials should be used. Never abrade an energized cable.
SpliceMaster Sandpaper Rolls contain 50 yards of 1-inch wide, flexible, 120-grit, non-conductive aluminum oxide sanding cloth.
Specifications and Applications:
Performance: Specification-grade Polywater DT lint-free wipes contain no fiber-bonding adhesives and out-perform other commercially available towels. The use of rags or other non-specified wipes can leave lint residues on cable insulation that cause tracking. Bonding adhesives can dissolve in solvent, redeposit on cable insulation, and lead to failure. Recycled rags may also contain oils or other contaminants that can then be deposited onto the insulation.
Compatibility: Only non-conductive sanding materials such as specgrade Polywater SP-ROLL should be used. Emery cloth and standard store-bought sandpapers and abrasives can leave conductive grit residues that could lead to cable failure and hazardous conditions. Never abrade an energized cable.
Specify: The key to a good splice and creating a reliable utility system is to use recommended materials and follow the proper procedures. Specify Polywater’s DT dry towels and SP-ROLL to ensure that conforming products are used in the field.
