Need a feasible solution for a job but won't except expanding foam, ideally needs to be an approved oil based, non-setting, re-usable sealing compound?

Any ideas??

not too sure what you are doing, so may be the wrong tree
see the TLC website.

Look for CSD sealing systems

You want a cable duct rise kit - gas and water tight or gas, water and fire rated

You'll need to check if it's WIMES compliant however - I believe it is but the water industry are a picky crew - so check it with the head shed first

Sorry, if that is what you need then I had wrong mental picture again
OMS is alluding to these - the macaroni cheese approach.
these

edit or if its a panel, and you need to get it both in and out then
Roxtec
are rather good - have used these on ( very much thickened up - imagine a 2" section of tube welded into the flat plate permanently ) vehicle roofs where we wanted to pass quite thin cables through with the connectors already on and not affect the integrity. It seemed to hold up quite happily against rain water ponding, which surprised me.

Thanks Guys

We have used CSD before, very good product but expensive.

I am after something more feasible which does a reasonable job.

Any ideas?

Please Advise.

Kind Regards

So you have been given the perfect solution (but already knew that anyway) and want to find something inferior? You could go for plastic carrier bags (stronger type you get from wholesalers) and then fill liberally with no-nonsense silicone.

How many cables in the duct and how many ducts

You can get cored or blank split plugs for most sensible duct sizes - again CSD would be my point of call - particularly as this is a WIMES job I suspect

You could look at these people for a solution.
