3M electrical cable terminations feature cold shrink technology, which is engineered for easy installation and long-term performance in the field. Cold shrink was introduced by 3M over 40 years ago and provides faster, easier installation and long-term reliability.
Our cold shrink terminations offer a reliable sealing solution for medium and high voltage applications, and are simple to install even in confined work areas – helping you save time and money. 3M electrical cable terminations cover a wide range of voltage levels from 3.3 kV to 33 kV.
3M offers you two options for choosing a medium voltage (3.3 kV - 33 kV) electrical cable termination. The QT-III termination utilizes the latest technology with built-in Hi-K stress controlling mastic and environmental sealing mastic resulting in a much more user-friendly application. The QT-II termination offers some of the same advantages as the QTIII termination but without a few of the time-saving features that the QT-III termination possesses. All terminations meet or exceed IEEE 48 requirements.
3M high voltage terminations (69 kV–145 kV) are designed to provide high reliability and save you time and money. They install quickly and easily, helping to reduce potential craft errors. They require no special tools, adhesives, torches, or other heat sources. Once installed, the cold shrink accessory creates a dynamic, compressive environmental seal and electrical interface without sealants or adhesives.
Our goal is to respond to your request within 24 hours. Some questions, however, may need further investigation to provide you with an appropriate response.
