Why would I choose a cable abandonment kit over cable end cap?

An expert from 3M details situations where a cable abandonment kit should be used over a cable end cap.

3M Cold Shrink Cable Abandonment Kits are suitable for XLPE (SWA steel wire armoured) and EPR (GSWB galvanised steel wire braided) insulated cables, including single and multicore cables with lead sheath, 600/1000v and 3.3kV.   

3M CSCAK cable abandonment kits (live cable end seals) are used to temporarily or permanently seal power, control and instrumentation cables - especially the abandonment of redundant or decommissioned low voltage offshore and shipwiring cables.

3M Cold Shrink cable abandonment kits are suitable for Zone 1 and Zone 2 hazardous area electrical installations without need for heat shrink "hot-working" and naked flames in potentially explosive environments - CSCAK abandonment kits suit EEMUA 133 XLPE lead sheathed power cables (600/1000v and 3.3kV) for use in the oil, gas and petrochemical industry.
