Heat shrink cable caps can be used to cap polymeric (XLPE) cables.
1) Cable sheaths should be abraded.
2) Heating gently before application of the heat shrink cable cap.
All cables should be immediately capped after cutting off a section - this is especially so in the case of a three core polymeric 11kV cable as it is non-water blocking.
NOTE: - when HV cable drums are returned to stores uncapped then the exposed cable end should be held on the ground and the drum rolled back one revolution and if no water runs out from the cable on the drum then it can be capped in the normal manner.
