Marine epoxy / Potting delaminating. When should I start getting worried

Hi guys,

Looking at my penetrators, I see an hairline gap around the cable.

When should I start being worried?

Also is there a way to re-use the penetrators?


Hi Etienne,

The sealing part of the connection in the penetrators is actually deeper inside the penetrator and not at the surface. In our experience, you can have a hairline separation there and still be sealed to very high pressures.

There isn’t really a way to reuse a cable penetrator, unfortunately, but I don’t think that should be necessary here.
