Highest Safety in Eco-Friendly Quality
KVM Sealing Compound is the ideal product for fireproof, gas- and watertight sealing of cable transits in bulkheads and decks of type A 60.
The sealing compound is suitable for all types of cables used in shipbuilding. KVM Sealing Compound is non-toxic and incombustible. This 2-component sealing compound is made only of inorganic raw materials. The two components being Powder and Original Hardener have unlimited shelf life.
An extensive investigation proved that cable specimens in contact with KVM Sealing Compound showed neither corrosion nor changes on the surface. All tested cable specimens still met the requirements of DIN 89158, DIN 89159 and DIN 89160 after six weeks of contact with KVM Sealing Compound under exposure of water. In addition KVM also conforms to the specifications of both IEC 92-3, 1965, and JIS 3410, 1976.
To prepare the KVM compound, one part of hardener and two parts of powder are simply mixed in a vessel either by hand or with use of a stirrer. After that, the compound can be poured into the cable ducts which should be pre-sealed by using our specially developed MANGANA putty.
Another favourable point: KVM Sealing Compound never shrinks! An expansion of volume during setting causes the pressure of the compound to metal and cable. This guarantees the gas- and watertightness. KVM hardens within 24 to 36 hours, depending on the ambient temperature. Only water is required to clean the equipment, e.g. vessel, pump, etc., that is used for preparing the compound.
