3M's Resin Jointing Kits Speed Cable Installation

3M Scotchcast LV Resin Jointing kits

3M's Scotchcast LV Resin Jointing kits are designed to simplify and speed up the installation of low-voltage electrical cable systems, while simultaneously minimising the risk of contact with resins.

The 3M Low Voltage Resin Joint range is said to be the first in the industry to use a one-part cable joint mould shell.

This enables more rapid installation of the cable joint, while a single top seal and five fixing clips ensure a consistent, error-proof process, reducing the chance of resin leakage and eliminating the need for additional taping.

The installer does not need to be exposed to the resin, since an integrated Scotchcast resin delivery system reduces the chances of skin contact or vapour inhalation. The 3M cable jointing resin is mixed in a two-part bag.

A release nozzle, which is built into the mixing bag, is then pierced by a receptor on the top of the mould shell.

The joint kits use 3M's own polyetherurethane resins, which are designed to comply with the impending environmental and user safety regulatory changes being brought in across the EU.

Foam seals at either end of the joint body provide a flexible but totally secure fit around the cable, removing the need for additional sawing or taping that is necessary with most existing resin jointing techniques.

The 3M Scotchcast LV Resin Jointing Kits cater for armoured and non-armoured power and instrumentation cables.

Within the range, there are options for standard applications such as street lighting and service cable jointing, and products for more specialised applications where there are high levels of humidity, gases or chemicals.
