• Incorrect use of WIRELOCK can result in an unsafe termination which may lead to property damage, serious injury or death.
• Do not use WIRELOCK with stainless steel wire rope in salt water environment applications.
• Use only soft annealed iron wire for seizing.
• Do not use any other wire (copper, brass, stainless, etc) for seizing.
• Never use an assembly until the WIRELOCK has gelled and cured.
• Remove any non-metallic coating from the broomed area.
• Sockets with large grooves need to have those grooves filled before use with WIRELOCK.
• WIRELOCK® resin, in liquid state, is flammable.
• Chemicals used in this product can give off toxic fumes and can burn eyes and skin.
• Never use out-of-date material.
• Use only in well-ventilated work areas.
• Never breathe fumes directly or for extended time.
• Always wear safety glasses to protect eyes.
• Always wear gloves to protect hands and avoid direct contact with skin.

Why choose WIRELOCK®?
1. WIRELOCK is a convenient and very simple system to use. There are no special preparations, no external heat is required and the system can even be used on site, at temperatures down to and slightly below 0°C.
2. Sockets, poured with WIRELOCK, can be put into service within 50 minutes, in a temperature range of 18°C to 24°C.
3. The use of WIRELOCK eliminates the need for heating socket assemblies, melting metal and handling the molten metal. It also has the advantage of being considerably lighter than white metal, making the subsequent handling of the socket easier.
4. WIRELOCK is currently used in conjunction with virtually all the commercially available sockets and ropes. Other nonstandard uses include short basket sockets, armoured cables and umbilical cables incorporating a strain member.
5. In common with most other resin systems WIRELOCK has no problem in coping with cold or extremely cold operating conditions, but does have a recommended upper operating limit of 115°C (a series of creep tests confirm, however, that WIRELOCK is much more efficient than zinc at 130°C).
6. WIRELOCK performs very well under the most hostile environments. The only exceptions being immersion in strong alkaline solutions, such as caustic soda, or strong acids.
7. The lack of heat, during the pouring process, means that there is no annealing of the wires and the grease within the rope at the neck of the socket remains intact. This decreases the chance of local, severe or internal corrosion in service.
8. WIRELOCK has the approval of Lloyds Register of Shipping as a socketing system.
