Patented 


Unique Patented Formula – Cablegard consists of a synergistic blend of corrosion inhibitors, penetrating aids, metals’ deactivators and age resistors in a highly refined, gelled mineral oil. It protects all major metals and alloys and is especially effective on steel, aluminium and zinc

Cold Applied


Cablegard is applied during the manufacture of the conductor at room temperature – straight from the drum as received. The need for the melting, storing, pumping and application of a molten grease is entirely eliminated. Cold application makes for a much cleaner operation than that of a molten grease where strict temperature control – and therefore viscosity – is very hard to achieve, making the operation both messy and difficult to control.

Stays in Place


Cablegard’s unique rheological (flow) characteristics enable it to be easily pumped at room temperature straight from the drum onto the conductor during the stranding operation. However, once applied it immediately re-sets & stiffens to resume its grease-like consistency and remain firmly in place.

Fills the Conductor 


Cablegard fills the conductor completely unlike hot-applied greases, Cablegard’s unique viscosity and flow characteristics enable the entire conductor to be 100% filled to ensure complete protection. In this way, the crevice corrosion, which is the main cause of failure, is eliminated.

Will Not Melt


Will Not Melt or Drain Away – Cablegard does not have a melting point, it stays where it is put, regardless of the highest temperatures likely to be encountered. The drop point of Cablegard is in excess of 300 degrees Celsius.

COST SAVINGS

SHORT TERM


Naturally, the cost of the high performance Cablegard anticorrosive is initially a little more than that of relatively crude hot-applied greases However, this is larely offset by the savings due to:

Ease of application

Elimination of heating and capital costs associated with storing and pumping molten grease

No trace-heated pipework to install and maintain

Cleaner, less messy operation

Improved safety compared to the handling of hot molten grease

COST SAVINGS

LONG TERM


The greatly superior properties of Cablegard will considerably extend the useful life of conductors which together with reduced maintenance, offers many long term savings:

 

The cost of the pylons

The conductors themselves

Stranding

Conductor erection

Replacement of corroded conductors
