Scotchcast Cable Joints

Branch Jointing Cables

3M Electrical branch cable jointing kits using Scotchcast resin are certified to BS-EN 50393:2006 – armoured and unarmoured LV branch cable joints complete with mechanical shearbolt connectors are available from stock.

Branch joints are encapsulated with two-part resin for electrical insulation and mechanical protection. Low voltage branch joints are suitable for both cut and uncut mains XLPE or PILC insulated power cables. For applications up to 1000 volts, the cable joints may be resin filled under load conditions.

Service branch and mains cables can be 2, 3 or 4 core cables – branch joints can be supplied without requiring the mains cable to be cut (“uncut mains”) using the appropriate shearbolt mechanical connectors.

Armoured Cables

Earth continuity across wire armoured or braided cables is achieved by using copper earth braid and constant force springs.

Thorne & Derrick stock the full range of 3M Scotchcast Resin Branch Cable Joints for 600/1000V low voltage cable jointing applications for installation underground, overground or underwater – this includes both polymeric (XLPE) and paper (PILC) insulated cables.
