Hendrix/Kerite Cable, a provider of underground power distribution products, has announced its DUAL BLOCK product. This offering provides a dual water blocking capability on Hendrix primary, underground cable.

First, a fill compound is continuously applied into the conductor interstices, which Hendrix says helps prevent longitudinal water migration. Second, a water-swellable powder is applied under the polyethylene jacket, which prevents water from migrating along the neutral wires under the jacket.

DUAL BLOCK is an option for all stranded conductor Hendrix cables.
