3M Scotchcast 40 Resin Storage
3M Scotchcast Resin 40 has a shelf life of at least 36 months when stored between 10°C and 40°C with a humidity level < 75 % in the originally sealed bag. The expiration date of the product appears on the product label. Storage beyond the date specified on the label does not necessarily mean that the 3M Scotchcast resin is no longer usable. In this case however, it is the responsibility of the user to determine applicability of the 3M resin.
➡ Complete range of Scotchcast Resins are available to protect and encapsulate cable joints.
