Beware: Imported Cable Cover


beware imported cable cover

In the past couple of years, Astron has experienced a number of instances of clients being caught with imported cable cover that claim to meet the AS4702 standard. The number one issue of the inferior imported cable cover is its ability to appear identical to the Astron cable cover except when tested. When tested, the imported cable cover was unable to pass the very stringent AS4702 penetration test due to it being filled with low value talc fillers to reduce cost. This non-conformance renders the material useless for its primary purpose of being a mechanical protector.
