nVent ERICO Quickfill No-Mix Ground Enhancing Backfill

nVent ERICO Quickfill is a no-mix ground-enhancing backfill that reduces resistance to ground and enables convenient installations. Quickfill is designed to minimize dust and eliminate mixing. It is the ideal material to use in areas of poor conductivity such as rocky ground, mountain tops, and sandy soil. Once installed, Quickfill is maintenance-free, not requiring periodic charging. Dry ground enhancement materials are more sensitive to seasonal variability than cement-based materials.

Features

  • Lowers system resistance to ground
  • Low-dust formulation
