On May 23, 2018, 3M announced the launch of the new Scotchcast Epoxy Resin 4GS, an easy-to-use two-part encapsulation resin with unique color change for safe and easy installation and protection. cable. 3M's new Scotchcast Epoxy 4GS has enhanced moisture resistance, making it easier to apply in the presence of water, a common problem when working in challenging electrical construction environments. It has new color-changing properties that provide electrical, engineer, and installers with clear indications of when the resin is properly mixed and further color changes when fully cured to ensure a reliable cable joint. The resin has CMR (carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic reproduction) and SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern) - a free formula for safer handling. The two-component Scotchcast Epoxy 4GS bag from 3M is available in a variety of sizes to easily mix by breaking the internal seal, resin and curing agent mixture. Within two minutes, the resin turns green, indicating that the assembly has begun to react properly and is ready for casting. The average time to prepare for curing of the cable was 30 minutes, and it was confirmed when the resin turned blue. These features provide a fast, mess-free installation that clearly shows the mixing and curing process, reduces the time required for installation, and provides a safe and easy cable connection. Once fully cured, the resin provides vibrant insulation, impact resistance and durability, as well as superior protection against moisture and atmospheric corrosion. 3M's Scotchcast Resin 4GS is also available as part of the 92 Series GS resin kit series. This also includes an innovative one-piece transparent phantom for ease of use and visual control of resin delivery. The one-piece transparent phantom also provides an integrated nozzle with pre-cut sealing elements. By connecting the integrated nozzle and spout of the resin bag directly to the transparent mold, the mold fill can be cleaned, minimizing the risk of contact with the resin. 3M's new Scotchcast Epoxy 4GS is suitable for electrical insulation and environmental protection. Low-voltage electrical connectors up to 0.6 / 1.0 (1.2) kV, electrical joints up to 20.8 / 36 (42) kV, suitable for indoor and outdoor use. , underground and underwater applications. It is also classified according to IEC 60455-3-8 as L-I-W, L-OP-W and M-OP-W.
