Cooper Crouse-Hinds® Introduces the New Chico® SpeedSeal(TM) Compound for Explosionproof Seals
Press release date: July 1, 2003
SYRACUSE, NY - The new Chico® SpeedSeal(TM) Compound from Cooper Crouse-Hinds lets you reliably install a complete explosionproof seal in less than five minutes by using a simple three-step process that saves time and money.
Chico® SpeedSeal comes in a pre-measured self-contained applicator, eliminating the need for water or extra mixing containers. Just pump to mix, inject the pre-measured amount, replace the plug and the fitting is sealed.
The Chico SpeedSeal compound expands after injection to tightly fill the entire fitting, automatically separating the conductors. The time-consuming and tedious task of packing fiber to separate the individual conductors is eliminated, saving the end-user 45 minutes. The end-user also saves an average of $45 (US dollars) in labor on every ¾-inch sealing fitting installed.
Chico SpeedSeal Compound will quickly harden to a dense, strong mass that is suitable for use in Class I, Division 1 Groups C & D and Class II, Division 1 Groups E, F & G applications. It is UL Listed and cUL Listed for use with Cooper Crouse-Hinds EYS Sealing Fittings up to 2 inches.
