Resil® – Re-enterable two-component silicone resin

Resil® is a two-component re-enterable silicone resin for filling and insulating low voltage junction
casings and boxes.
The electrical and mechanical features of Resil® ensure protection and insulation from water, dust,
and elements for electrical connections and components, and its high resistance to penetration makes it ideal for use as a filler for GSA and GSB series shells to make straight (RJA series) and branch (RJB series) low voltage Resil Joints® connections.

Use & Reuse

Thanks to RESIL®‘s innovative formula, unlike traditional resins, it is possible to use only the amount required, keeping the remainder for later use: no waste with maximum yield and versatility of use.

Re-enterable

Resil®, unlike polyurethane and epoxy resins, allows re-entering long after cross-linking has taken place, and ensures good mechanical strength and protection against accidental contact with live parts.

High performance

Resil®‘s fast cross-linking reduces installation and activation time, as well as labour costs. The process is non-exothermic and so it causes no damage to the components and the parts to be insulated. High dielectric strength: 23 kV/mm. Wide range of operating temperatures (-40 to 115 °C).

Easy and waste-free

The two components used to make Resil® come in separate containers to ensure the correct 1:1 mixing ratio. The new 1 and 5-liter measuring jugs allow waste-free, thorough and rapid mixing, even if the silicone resin is mixed in one go.

Safe

Resil® contains no isocyanates and ensures maximum safety levels for the environment and operators. Resil® is classified as non-hazardous under European Regulation no. 1272/2008 (CLP) and can be disposed of as solid waste.

Available size

Resil® is available in 2 sizes: 1 and 4-liters bottles, both with measuring jug.
