  • The 3M™ Cable Abandonment kit comes complete with all the components required to abandon cables either temporarily or permanently.

There is no requirement for mastic, grease or heat unlike other alternative options and because these products are cold applied, the system is ideal where hot work permits are difficult to obtain.
