3M Scotchcast 253 Resin

3M Scotchcast Resin 253 is a filled electrical liquid, epoxy resin for temperature curing with the following features common to the complete range of 3M Scotchcast Electrical Liquid Resins:

• Easy Mixing Ratios
• Moderate to Long Pot Life
• Low Exotherm
• High Adhesion
• Good to Excellent Electrical Properties
• Range of Flexibility and Viscosity

253 Resin offers many of the advantages of 3M Resin 241 and 243. Its thixotropic nature renders it useful in dipping, brushing or trowelling applications where resistance to running or sagging is a requirement. Contact us for 3M Electrical technical support, specification guidance or assistance on the selection of electrical insulating resins for all LV MV HV applications.

3M Scotchcast Resin Temperature Classes

A resin rated in a specific temperature class is deemed capable of operating continuously at that temperature. The Association of Industrial Electrical Engineers (AIEE Standard Number 1) denotes some of these temperature class ratings:
Class O = 90°C (194°F)
Class A = 105°C (221°F)
Class B = 130°C (266°F)
Class F = 155°C (311°F)
Class H = 180°C (356°F)

Typical Applications: Motor or transformer iron, transformer coil, toroidal core, busbar, wound assembly (coil impregnation).

3M Scotchcast Electrical Liquid Resins are 100-percent-solid, thermosetting, electrical-grade insulating resins. Classified chemically as either epoxies or polyurethanes, the 3M Scotchcast product line includes two-part epoxy liquids and two-part polyurethane liquids. The unique electrical and physical properties make them ideal for insulating and protecting electrical and electronic parts and assemblies, including cable joints, splices, connections and cables. Their physical features also make them suitable for nonelectrical, general-use applications, such as adhesives and sealants. 3M Scotchcast Powder Resins are a series of one-part, 100-percent-solid electrical-grade systems offering fast curing, excellent thermal and mechanical shock resistance, significant cut-through resistance, high adhesion, excellent chemical and moisture resistance, high-to-low flow characteristics and excellent electrostatic coating capability.
