3M™ Scotchcast™ Premium Resin Cable Joint Kits feature Scotchcast™ Electrical Insulating Resin 40, which is a high-quality two-part compound designed for general-purpose electrical insulation, moisture sealing, and mechanical protection.
3M Scotchcast resin splicing kits utilize a two-part polyurethane infill compound which is 100% solid, electrical grade, and hydrolytically stable insulating resins that exhibit good adhesion to plastic, XPLE, PVC, nylon, and all types of metals. Once cured, the resin combines good durability with excellent protection against moisture, salt, oil, and any type of chemicals.
- The kits utilize the express one-part mold body, saving time and cost through extra fast setup.
- The closed mix pours feature eliminates the chance of skin contact thus increasing user safety and minimizing wastage from spills.
- Applications are suitable for indoor, outdoor, underground, and submerged areas.
- Other separate kits include the 3M™ Scotchcast™ 92-NBB-U Series which have an express two-part mold body and feature 3M™ Scotchcast™ Insulating Resin 1402FR which is a flame retardant,halogen-free and remains virtually affected by immersion in hydrocarbons and chemical solvents.
