3M Stockist – Worldwide Delivery, Competitive Quotations

 3M Electrical

3M Electrical manufacture cable accessories including cable joints, cable terminations and abandonment kits for LV,MV and HV cables (11kV 33kV 66kV) – 3M Cold Shrink and 3M Scotchcast Resin brands are trusted worldwide for reliable and safe cable connections.

Cable joints are used to repair damaged cables, replace cable fault sections and extend existing cable circuits. Cable terminations connect cable ends onto electrical equipment bushings in switchgear and transformers.

Cable abandonment kits can be used to safely seal and ground redundant or decommissioned cables, especially in the oil and gas industry.

Cold Shrink technology provides consistent installation for LV, 11kV and 33kV cable jointing and terminating for all types of single and multi-core power cables. No heat or specialist jointing tools are needed providing reduced labour costs and eliminating installer error.

Scotchcast resin cable joints are trusted across all industries for the effective and reliable jointing of power, control and instrumentation cables.

Scotchcast LVI type resin cable joints are “one-part” design for quick installation and jointing of most cable insulation types (XLPE PVC EPR). Specialist application cable joints include fire resistant, low smoke zero halogen and hydrocarbon resistant resins.

3M Cable Joints & Cable Terminations – Cold Shrink & Scotchcast

3M Cold Shrink and Scotchcast Resin cable joints and cable terminations are tested to IEEE and IEC standards for low, medium and high voltage power cables up to transmission voltages 66kV, 132kV and 145kV networks. In 1971 3M introduced Cold Shrink tubes for insulating underground low voltage cable joints or splices. Fast forward to today and Cold Shrink dominates the electrical industry providing LV-HV joints and terminations for all cable types and applications.

3M Cold Shrink

Cold Shrink Tubing EPDM (PST)

Cold Shrink was invented by 3M over 40 years ago. Typical applications for Cold Shrink tubes include jointing, terminating, insulating and repairing electric cables – this covers low, medium (11kV-33kV) and high voltage cables (66kV-132kV).

Cold Shrink cable accessories are suitable for direct burial, aerial and submerged applications. Cold Shrink tubes are close-ended, tubular EPDM rubber sleeves which are factory expanded onto a removable core. When positioned over the end of a cable, the core is removed by unwinding to provide a reliable environmental seal.
