How To Abandon Cables
Low Voltage Polymeric Cables up to 3.3kV
This video by 3M Electrical shows how to abandon cables safely using 3M CSCAK Cable Abandonment Kits.
3M CSCAK cold shrink cable abandonment kits are used to temporarily or permanently seal power, control and instrumentation cables – especially the abandonment of redundant or decommissioned low voltage offshore, marine and shipwiring power, control and instrumentation cables.
3M CSCAK kits are complete with all components to provide temporary or permanent abandonment of cables – this ensures cables are safe even if re-energised using cold shrink end caps and pre-stretched tubes.
The 3M Electrical video also shows the “live memory” action of Cold Shrink providing reliable and durable cable end seals without need for “hot working” permits in potentially explosive atmospheres or hazardous area zones located onshore and offshore.

Should you require support about selecting the correct cable abandonment kit from the 3M Cold Shrink product range for use with low, medium or high voltage cables please contact us – a complete range of Cold Shrink cable joints and terminations is available for MV-HV cables, including 11kV/33kV.
Where additional mechanical protection for connecting underground power cables in cable trench is required we can recommend Scotchcast cable joints with resin encapsulation to resist impact damage during backfill or future excavation and digging works.
For jointing cables in hazardous area locations go to our Blog about ATEX cable joints utilising advanced specification Scotchcast resins to provide a hydro carbon resistant joint or repair to damaged or extended cable circuits.
