cable must be inspected for damage, stripped and the outer jacket evenly
the cable jackets for significant damage in splice area. Small nicks can
quickly be removed with the provided Abrasive
Pad by abrading the damaged area. If light abrading does not smooth out
the damage, an Exacto knife (or razor blade) can be used to scrape the area
with the blade, back and forth, along the length of the cable until all
nicks, cuts etc. are removed.
CAUTION: Using excessive pressure with the
blade, could result in further damage to the cable. Cable with significant
damage should be cut back to good jacket material.

shield/conductors. When stripping the jacket from the conductors, avoid
damaging the conductors and their shields.

completed assembly. This will minimize the finished splice diameter.

careful not to nick conductors or remaining insulation.
achieve a best bond between the cable jacket and the Splice Seal Tubing, it is necessary to abrade the surface of the
jacket with the Abrasive Pad
the pad around the jacket and abrade with a twisting motion a 3" minimum
length, starting from the end of the jacket. The jacket will have a dull,
matt finish when properly abraded. If the jacket is glossy and/or smooth in
appearance, it is not properly abraded and may produce a poorer bond.
