Cable Accessories

Improve infrastructure safety. Increase energy efficiency. Reduce maintenance costs.

Dow Corning® and Silastic® liquid silicone rubber elastomers improve infrastructure safety, increase energy efficiency, and reduce maintenance costs for cable accessories.


Provide long-term protection for high voltage components

Proven XIAMETER® brand liquid silicone rubber (LSR) elastomers from Dow Corning allow you to construct high voltage distribution materials such as cable end terminations, cold-shrink splices, and terminations, adapters, and connectors that:

  • Extend service life -- silicones remain hydrophobic, resisting water long after other materials fail
  • Improve reliability -- resilient silicone rubber stands up to environmental contaminants, physical stresses, and vandalism
  • Are easy to install: premolded, assembly-free cable end terminations
  • Reduce total system costs including raw material costs
  • Improve arc-track resistance

Gain manufacturing productivity and design flexibility

  • Design cold-shrink splices using very-low-modulus silicone rubbers with high tear resistance -- ideal for quick, tool-less installation in confined distribution situations
  • Maximize your production processes for casting, coating, or injection molding
  • Utilize LSRs for maximum process efficiency

Enhance electrical systems with long-lasting protection

  • Protect against environmental stresses and extend component service life.

  • Reduce grid power loss, improve safety and security, and reduce maintenance costs

  • Extend hydrophoblic performance, weatherability, resistance to the elements, while minimizing tracking and erosion.
