LV Resin Cable Jointing & Splice Kits for Power Cables 




3M Scotchcast LR hazardous area power cable joints are suitable for XLPE, EPR and PILC cables with steel wire armour (SWA) or galvanised steel wire braid (GSWB), 0.6/1kV and up to 3.3kV.

3.3kV Cable Jointing. Up-rating 3M Scotchcast resin cable joints for connecting unscreened 3.3kV power cables is achieved by increasing the Scotch 23 self-amalgamating tape to 5 half-lapped layers over each connector.

For smaller cables where pre-insulated connectors are used, it is not required to cover the connectors with Scotch 23 tape.

3M LR Scotchcast cable joints are also suitable for lead sheathed cables (XLPE and PILC) and transition cable joints.

3M Scotchcast No. 1400U resin cable joints are flame retardant with excellent long term resistance against hydrocarbons.

Suitable for areas where there is a danger of gas, oil, sewage or chemical spillage including Zones 1 & 2 Hazardous Areas.  

Cable joints do not come under ATEX 94/9/EC because they are part of the cabling system - cables are not certified for use in hazardous areas but the requirements for suitable cables and joints are dealt with in EN IEC60079-14 Installation in Hazardous Areas.

Effectively this means they are covered under good practice under the DSEAR (ATEX 137) regulations - SIRA Certification Statment Ex Products Manager 2008.
