Cable Joints and Terminations


We have developed our Cold Shrink technology to be used in medium voltage cable joints and cable terminations. Our one-part joint bodies and terminations have built-in stress control, semi-conducting and insulation layers. 3M Cold Shrink components are pre-stretched on a spiral core, which is removed by hand. The live memory action shrinks the component to give a reliable and durable seal.

  • Easy installation of cold shrink components
  • Increased reliability of cable joints and terminations
  • Reduced labour costs
  • Less hazardous working conditions

Cold Shrink Joint System

Improve reliability, reduce time, labour, and overall cost with our wide range of one-piece joint bodies. Fits cable sizes from 50mm up to 630mm (11kV up to 46kV).

Cold Shrink Medium Voltage Terminations
The one-piece design of this cable termination, manufactured with a specially formulated silicone material, reduces the likelihood of tracking, is UV stable and adverse to water (hydrophobic). The cold shrink medium voltage terminations are available for indoor and outdoor applications for single core and 3-core cables up to 46kV.
Cold Shrink End Caps

Used to protect cable ends from environmental damage, our end caps are close-ended tubular rubber sleeves that are factory loaded onto a removable core. After positioning over the end of a cable, the core is removed by hand.

PBR (polybutadiene resin) Re-enterable Filler
Our re-enterable filler can be used on either temporary or permanent cable joints. The PBR (polybutadiene resin) Re-enterable Filler for Cable Joints is designed for easy removal, enabling further work or the recovery of parts, and can be removed with a simple plastic knife - no other tools, heat or solvents are required.
Low voltage resin splice

These resins provide a reliable and durable moisture barrier in a variety of cabling applications. Our Low Voltage Cable Splice resins offer a high degree of mechanical strength for physical protection of cable connections and moisture-resistant insulation in above-ground or direct-burial applications.

Medium Voltage separable cables
Our advanced silicon-based medium voltage separable connectors provide an easy, safe and economic solution for connecting medium voltage cables to compact (gas insulated) electrical equipment.
