3M LVBY-2/x Scotchcast Y-Branch Cable Joint Resin Kit (40 Resin) – Armoured Cables

cABLE JOINTS FOR LV POWER CABLES

3M LVBY-2/x Scotchcast resin cable joint kits are designed to be used for multi-core armoured, polymeric, low voltage power and energy cables up to 600V/1000V.

3M LVBY-2/x Scotchcast cable joints incorporate electrical insulation and mechanical protection of joints with compression or mechanical connectors– the cable joints can be used for indoor and outdoor, underground and submerged applications with high humidity or weather exposure.

3M Scotchcast hazardous area cable joints are also available for jointing power, pilot and instrumentation cables in Zone 1 and Zone 2 potentially explosive atmospheres.

3M CABLE JOINT DESCRIPTION – Y BRANCH CABLE JOINTS

3M Scotchcast Resin Cable Joints

Scotchcast Joints – Safe & Reliable Resins

3M Y branch LVBY-2/x resin cable joint kits are supplied with a one part translucent mould body for simple and easy handling. Distances inside the cable joint body can be checked easily.

All necessary dimensions, including kit application range, cable preparation are given in the detailed jointing instruction.

The two foam sealing elements can be adapted to the required cable diameter by removing the pre-cut adapter rings.

Scotchcast resin 40 is delivered in a two chamber bag with integrated spout and aluminium Guard Bag for protection of the resin against humidity.

The re-openable seam and integrated spout with a membrane provides a 3M Closed, Mixing and Pouring (pictured) cable jointing system. After the seam of the two chamber bag is opened, the Scotchcast resin components can be mixed.

To pour the resin into the mould body, the spout is connected with the dome by turning 180°.

While turning, the membrane is cut open to pour the resin. The 3M Closed Mixing and Pouring System provides resin handling without any skin contact – for protection against pollution, a closure cap is applied onto the dome. After curing, the remaining joint resin in the bag can be disposed as household waste.

3M Scotchcast 40 Resin

3M Scotchcast Resin 40 is a non-filled, 2 part polyurethane cable jointing resin for temperature curing – the Scotchcast Resin has been specifically designed for electrical insulation and mechanical protection of resin cable joints.

The 3M Scotchcast 40 Resin is classified as LIW (low voltage insulation water curable) according Cenelec HD 631.1 S2 Standard. Once cured, the resin provides impact resistance and durability against moisture and atmospheric corrosion. Continuous operating temperature of installed product is -40°C to + 110°C.

The 40 Resin is in compliance with EU regulation 1907/2007/EC (REACH).
