The FST™ seal has excellent adhesion to PVC, rigid steel, EMT, IMC, fiberglass and polyethylene conduits.


Polywater® Splice Shield™ Environmental Barrier: CS-KIT

Don’t just “tape and hope” – Use Splice Shield!

Splice Shield™ sealant leaves a thick flexible coating that offers excellent protection against oil, water and corrosion. It contains no dangerous low-TLV or highly flammable solvents.
