The XAGA 1650 splice closure system providesa fast, simple way to seal and encapsulate telephone cable splices in nonpressurized, buried cable. The XAGA 1650 closure sleeve is made of SuperSleeve sealing material, which combines the strength and durability of composite design with proven heat-shrink technology.
SuperSleeve sealing material is composed of several layers of specially blended polymers and adhesives, a fiber-reinforcing layer, and an aluminum moisture vapor barrier layer. The fiber reinforcing layer provides excellent mechanical strength and eliminates the propagation of localized damage that can result from over heating or other errors in installation. Once the XAGA 1650 closure sleeve has been installed, the composite design of the SuperSleeve sealing material provides superior mechanical protection from forces such as impact and abrasion.
The innovative Urethane Delivery System drives encapsulant into the core of the cable, providing protection superior to that of traditional poured urethane systems. The compact shape requires less than half the encapsulant of other closures. Filling is simple: no funnel is required. Re-entry is fast and easy.
No special splice supporting procedures are needed for installation. Furthermore, up to three cables can enter each end using the adhesive-coated branch-off clip. No special endplates or complicated cutting are required. The XAGA 1650 closure sleeve simply shrinks to fit and seal.
The XAGA 1650 splice closure system is available in diameters for cable sizes up to 2400pair. Extended length closures are also available to accommodate sheath openings up to 37inches and for cable sizes up to 3600 pair.
Approximately 3000G of encapsulant required.
