GIBSON STAINLESS // New Product Release
SPLIT RING CLAMPS
Split ring clamps are designed to provide space between a raceway and the wall, floor, ceiling or other structure on which it is run. This “stand-off” is often found in wash-down areas where water and chemicals are used to clean the area and where it is necessary to ensure nothing is trapped between the conduit system and the mounting surface.

2-½” Conduit Hubs, Grounding Hubs, Locknuts, and Grounding Locknuts
Gibson Stainless has added the 2-½” size to their conduit hub and locknut product line. Heavy-duty, cast CF8M/316 SS conduit hubs are designed for use with threaded conduit and provide a means of connecting conduit to various enclosures and/or for terminating electric circuits. A neoprene “O” ring provides a watertight seal and a specially designed locknut (316 SS) grips firmly for secure installation. Stainless steel locknuts are used to connect and secure threaded rigid conduit to an enclosure or outlet box.
Plasti-Bond PVC-coated conduit Form 8 Condulet Bodies are now certified by UL for Type 4X and IEC for IP69 rating
Plasti-Bond Form 8 fittings offer the most effective way of protecting your electrical systems and proving the best available corrosion protection. Plasti-Bond Form 8 fittings carrying the UL Type 4X and IEC IP69 rating, which were tested to IP69K found in the DIN standard 40050-9, meeting the highest protection rating on the scale and providing defense against ingress of dust, water, and other foreign matter.
Ingress protection ratings can be identified by the letters IP, followed by two numbers. These two numbers determine the amount of protection against specified elements and the product’s ability to resist foreign matter. The first number (6) refers to the product’s ability to resist ingress of solid matter such as dust. The second number (9) refers to the product’s ability to resist ingress of high temperature steam / high-pressure water. The larger the number, the greater the protection provided. The IP69 rating is the highest protection available.
Testing for IP69 includes a set of tests for both protection against solids and liquids. The dust test is conducted in a closed dust chamber containing 2 kg/m3 of suspended talcum powder particles of 50μm diameter or less. The powder is circulated for 8 hours at a rate sufficient to cycle the volume of powder present at least 60 times.
In order to bear an IP69 label for protection from water intrusion, the water jetting test is conducted by placing the enclosure on a turntable that rotates every 12 seconds (5 rpm) and spraying 176 F (80⁰C) water from 4-6 inches at a flow rate of 4 gal per minute. Water is sprayed at angles of 0, 30, 60, and 90 degrees for 30 seconds each. Products tested to the IP69k standard, undergoes water pressure of 1160-1450 psi throughout the testing procedure. Following this rigorous testing procedure, the product successfully achieves the rating if it completely resists water ingress.
Plasti-Bond PVC coated conduit Form 8 fittings size ½”-4” have the patented V-Seal® gasket protecting the enclosure from dust, water, and corrosion. Using a proprietary production process, the shape of the seal is guaranteed to protect the interlocking “V” groove from damage. In addition, plastic encapsulated stainless steel screws with retainers built into the covers for all trade sizes create a UL-tested, watertight/dust-tight/and corrosion-resistant seal around each screw opening. Even with this new listing, Plasti-Bond will continue to provide their Form 8 fittings at the same low cost as the traditional Form 7 fitting.
