3M™ Scotchcast TM Resin 40 is a non filled, two component polyurethane resin for room temperature curing. The resin has been designed for electrical insulation and mechanical protection of electrical cables joints. The 40 resin is classified as LIW (low voltage insulation water curable) according Cenelec HD 631.1 S2 Standard. Once the hardening is complete, the resin provides impact resistance and durability against moisture and atmospheric corrosion.
Mechanical protection and electrical insulation of low voltage electrical joints installed for indoor and outdoor, underground and submerged applications.
Good adhesion on metals and different plastics. Hydrophobic behaviour during the curing stage. Excellent hydrolytic stability Available with Closed Mix and Pour Delivery System Low exothermic reaction temperature.
The resin will be supplied, in two-chamber plastic pouches with peelable barrier in the correct stoichiometric proportion. This type of packaging will assure the correct mixing ratio for applying the resin. The packaging includes a Closed Mix and Pour Delivery System. The integrated pouring spout will be opened while attaching the mixed resin bag to the housing of the joint or by using the supplied opener. For other information, relevant for the usage of the resin, like Gel-Time, Pot-Life, viscosity, density etc. please see above the typical properties.
3M™ Scotchcast TM Resin 40 has a shelf life of at least 36 months when stored between 15 °C and 35 °C with a humidity level < 75 % in the originally sealed bag. The expiration date of each product appears on the product label. Storage beyond the date specified on the label does not necessarily mean that the product is no longer usable. In this case however, it is the responsibility of the user to determine applicability of the resin.
