You can also use this kit to repair jacketed MC products if the armor is not compromised and the conductors are not damaged. Damaged armor and damaged conductors cannot be repaired using this kit.

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS
  1. For the 2-layer THHN/THWN-2 cables, remove 4 inches of the transparent Nylon jacket layer on each side of the damaged area. Skip step 1 for other products.
  2. Remove any protruding sharp edges from the damaged area. Abrade 6 inches of the cable jacket or insulation layer on each side of the damaged area using the abrasive strips enclosed in the kit.
  3. Clean the abraded area using a solvent-wet wipe and dry with a lint-free wipe. Both wipes are included in the kit.
  4. If the aluminum or copper conductor in a single-conductor cable or the metallic shield in a shielded cable is exposed, apply one half-lapped layer of Re3TM-2 Protective Vinyl Finishing tape to cover the exposed metal. Skip step 4 if there is no exposed metal
  5. Peel the liner off of the Re3TM-1 Primary Rubber Repair tape as you apply one half-lapped layer, covering the brown tacky area and leaving the black rubber area exposed. Lightly stretch the tape as you apply it. Cover 5 inches on each side of the damaged area.
  6. Apply two half-lapped layers of Re3TM-2 Protective Vinyl Finishing tape for 6 inches on each side of the damaged area to completely cover the taped area from step 5.
