3M Cold Shrink Cable Splice Kits

3M Cold Shrink 3M Hazardous Area Cable Joints Kits

Cold Shrink Tubes - 3M Splice Kits

3M Cold Shrink Cable Splice Kits 8420 Series are designed using the unique cold shrink delivery system developed by 3M. 3M cable splices are supplied pre-stretched on a removable core for efficiency and ease of installation.

The removable 3M core unwinds after positioning the 3M cold shrink cable splice, allowing the splice to cold shrink into position and form a moisture resistant seal. The live memory action of the specially formulated cold shrink tube material ensures a permanent, durable environmental seal and insulation - T&D stock 3M Cold Shrink Tubes

3M Cold Shrink - Description 

3M Cold Shrink Connector Insulators are open-ended, tubular, rubber sleeves which are factory expanded and assembled onto a removable core. The core is removed after the tube has been positioned for installation over an inline connection, terminal lug, etc., allowing the cold shrink tube to shrink and form a water-resistant seal. 

The cold shrink insulating tube is made of EPDM rubber which contains no chlorides or sulfurs. Six diameter cold shrink tubes will cover a range of 1000 volt cable from 10 AWG through 1000 kcmil, copper and aluminum conductors. To extend the useful life of 3M cold shrink in applications which are continuously exposed to high levels of ultra-violet radiation, overwrap the 3M Cold Shrink Tube with 3M Scotch Super 33+ Vinyl Tape or 3M Scotch 70 Silicone Tape.

Cold shrink tubes provide a constant radial pressure and seal without adhesive allowing for cable or pipe expansion and contraction after installation - 3M Cold Shrink is simple and fast to install, no tools or "hot-working" required for use in potentially explosive and hazardous area atmospheres, including Zones 1 and Zones 2.

 3M Cold Shrink - Typical Applications

  • Insulation and sealing of inline cable splices and electrical connectors
  • Primary electrical insulation up to 1kV for cold shrink cable repairs
  • Conduit and cable breakout sealing - moisture barrier
  • Tubes available in EPDM rubber and silicone (Low Smoke & Fume LSF)
  • Primary electrical insulation for all solid dielectric (rubber and plastic) insulated wire and cable splicing rated to 1000 volts. 
  • Direct burial or submersible cold shrink cable splices. 
  • For indoor and outdoor. 
  • Physical protection and moisture sealing for high-voltage, air-insulated connectors and lugs  
  • Insulation of secondary cable splices, copper or aluminum conductors
  • Dig-in repairs 
  • Cable sheath repairs

Cold Shrink Tubes 3M :  EPDM rubber cold shrink tubes provide cable sealing, protection and insulation for low voltage (LV) power cables up to 1000 volts. Tough EPDM 3M cold shrink rubber tubes are suitable for underground cable joints and direct burial. Resistant to acids and alkalis. Resistant to fungi, ozone and UV light to seal, protect and insulate outdoor cables.

How?

3M Cold Shrink tubes are open-ended, tubular rubber sleeves, which are factory expanded onto a removable core. The core is removed after the cold shrink tube has been positioned for installation over an inline connection, splice or cable lug, allowing the cold shrink tube to shrink and form a waterproof seal. Cold shrink tubes provide a quicker, safer and easier sealing solution for cables and pipes than heat shrink - no "hot-work" permit required for oil, gas and petrochemical site installations. T&D stock an extensive range of 3M Cold Shrink Tubes and Tubing.

3M Cold Shrink Tubes meet worldwide standards ANSI, IEEE, VDE, JCAA, REA and CSA.
