Cable coating cracks, UV damage, Oil, Mud, Water, or Mechanical Damage on cables.

We can repair damaged cables to upgrade your cables fire technical and insulation properties.

We offer cable repair and application with our FS5 cable coating to vital electrical cables running through high-risk areas. This eliminates the need to change or reroute cables. Not only will our cable coating systems repair existing damage, but also prevent future damage to your cable jackets. Our cable coating system is unique: it can repair damaged cables and offer fire protection in one operation. Failing to repair damaged cables can leave your ship, rig or industrial plant seriously impaired.

This is how we do cable restoration when the outer sheath is damaged:

This is the process Fire Security use to repair damaged cables and make them fire resistant with the use of our FS 5 cable coating:

  1.  Remove damaged outer sheath.
  2.  Clean cables.
  3.  Apply linerless rubber tape to all damaged cables.
  4.  Apply a thick layer of coating, then a fiber mesh for additional
    mechanical strength.
  5.  Let the coating dry and cure for 24 hours.
  6.  Apply a second layer of FS-5 coating.
  7.  After another 24 hours rest, apply the last layer FS coating.
  8.  Cable repair finished.

This is how we do cable restoration when the cable screen is damaged:

1. Repair the outer damage.

When damage has occurred to the outer sheath and the cable screen, the latter is repaired using a metal shielding tape.

2. Restore the insulation.

The procedure is completed by application of the FS5 cable coating and a supporting fibre mesh. The coating will restore the insulation.

3. Fire protection.

The repaired cable is placed on the cable tray and sprayed with another layer of FS 5 that will fully restore the strength of the cable and add fire protection.

1998.
Cleaning, repairing and coating old cables, 1.000 meters of electrical cable trays.

About 1.000 cables, associated with controls, lighting, communications and other services, were contaminated throughout a number of locations outside the gas compression and power generation modules.

Fire Security was contracted to do the work and it was carried out with no disruption to production operations and without any electrical isolation.

The solution was far less expensive than changing out the cables and resulted in no production downtime.
