BBC Cellpack Gelportfolio

Non-labelled gel casting compounds for protection and insulation of electrical connections up to 1 kV

Intelligent gel solutions

BBC Cellpack Electrical Products is the reliable partner in the electrical sector since 50 years as a manufacturer of cable system connections and accessories for low and medium voltage. BBC Cellpack cable joints have been always convincing by combining high quality user friendly products and practical mounting as well as reliable functional safety. In order to protect the reliability of electrical connections BBC Cellpack expands the casting compound gel portfolio based on silicon.

Wherever electric and electronic components need to be reliably protected from external factors, gel casting compounds from BBC Cellpack take advantage. Whether outdoor or indoor with a high humidity level, the simple handling gel casting compounds offer a reliable and permanent protection to the electrical connection. With a suitable housing and the appropriated gel, the protection class IP 68 can be achieved.

The wide BBC Cellpack gel portfolio offers modern casting compound gels to protect electrical and electronic components in the low voltage up to 1 kV. Right from the developing of these new products user friendly handling was clearly placed in the focus. As a consequence of numerous application tests the different gels are offered in suitable packaging sizes, cans, mixing bags, cartridges and plastic tins.

All BBC Cellpack gels are safety for processing, they are non-labelled as well as non toxic and conforming to REACH and RoHS directives. Moreover the gels are transparent or color translucent, easy removable, halogen-free, UV stable and flexible. The viscosities are optimally adjusted in each case to the intended field of application, so that casted gel remains soft-elastic simultaneously form stable. Vibration damping reliable prevents wire breakages or loose of contacts. In addition transparent gels allow after the casting or at any point in time an optical and physical check of the connection. Furthermore most of gels offer the possibility of individual dosing and an unlimited shelf life.

Optimal solutions for a wide range of applications

In order to response to many electrical applications with changing protection requirements, BBC Cellpack offers a wide portfolio of casting compounds which includes also polyurethane cast resins (PUR cast resins) and hydrocarbon resins in addition to the silicone gels described before. All casting compounds have different properties and allow an ideal selection by numerous criteria.

Silicon gels are mainly used when a fast and uncomplicated casting to protect against moisture is desired. Due to their properties, these flexible, transparent or colored-translucent casting compounds are accessible at any time, e. g. for testing of the connection, and can even be removed.
PUR cast resins are proven in use for many decades in electrical insulation, protection against moisture, water and harsh environmental conditions as well as against mechanical shocks and vibrations. The outstanding characteristic is the mechanical strength and long-term protection in terms of resistance, as well as the possible range of application-related variants.
Hydrocarbon resins are environmentally friendly 2-component casting compounds, free of silicone and isocyanate.One of the main characteristic is the higher electrical insulation. Characteristic are the high electrical insulation values compared to PUR cast resins and silicone gels as well as the curing process without heat development.
