In addition to universal plugging compounds, we have a wide selection of plugging kits to provide the tools and supplies you need in one place. Our plugging kits are designed for use with the Q-TEL 2005 Universal Plugging Compound and the Q-TEL 2012 Low Viscosity Plugging Compound to construct pressure plugs in PIC, pulp insulated, or paper insulated air core cables.

Our plugging kits are available with either 12” or 18” sleeves. Installation information is easily accessible through written instruction and online videos.

Heavy-Duty Injection Guns

Our heavy-duty injection guns are built to last through demanding working conditions. Each one is effectively used to apply our plugging compounds into cables to form moisture or air dams that protect equipment for superior performance over time. Currently, our offerings cover 6oz., 8oz., and 20oz. cartridges.
