3M Electrical Supplies for the Rail Industry

  • Overview
    • PADs approved products

      3M has over 200 products that meet Network Rail’s Parts and Design System (PADS, which has become the de facto standard for the UK rail industry.  Across joints, terminations and cable accessories the range spans 11, 22, 33 and 52kV voltage classes. The comprehensive list gives rail contractors and customers a broad choice of options, including: inline, single core, paper-to-XLP, transition and phase 3 jointing systems, wire-marking and cable identification, tapes, adhesives, resins, cables and the Smoke, Toxicity, Flame & Fume (STFF) Shield range, which creates protective sleeves for polymeric cable joints in underground tunnels.

    • LV joints

      The 3M Scotchcast LV Resin Jointing kits ARE designed to simplify and speed up installation of low voltage electrical cable systems, while simultaneously minimising the risk of contact with resins.  Unlike existing resin mould joint systems that use two shell components, the new range from 3M is the first in the industry to use a one-part mould shell.  This enables more rapid installation of the cable joint, with reduced change of resin leakage and completely eliminating the need for additional taping.  At no point does the installer need to be exposed to the resin, since an integrated resin delivery system reduces the chances of skin contact or vapour inhalation.
