Knicked insulation

What's the best thing going for repairing damaged insulation on a direct buried 500 kcmil XLPE AL conductor.

I'm heading out tomorrow to look at it so all I have to go on is the GC's word for now. Typically if the conductor has been damaged I'll use a 3M cold shrink splice kit over a compression butt splice.

Do they make any kit that fits over a cable without cutting it. Obviously i can use rubber and tape. But I like using kits for repairs not caused by me.

It will be interesting to see what the GC calls a "nick" :whistling2:

That's the first thing I thought of.

The conductor must not be cut all the way thru.:laughing:
