Scotchcast 40G two component polyurethane resin

( Company products )

Application

Scotchcast 40G is designed for mechanical protection and electrical insulation of low voltage electrical joints installed for indoor and outdoor, underground and submerged applications.

Scotchcast 40G characteristics

Two component polyurethane compound 3M Scotchcast 40G is non-filled resin for room temperature curing. Scotchcast 40G resin is classified as LIW (low voltage insulation water curable) according to Cenelec HD 631.1 S2 Standard. Once cured, the resin provides impact resistance and durability against moisture and atmospheric corrosion.

 

Scotchcast 40G features:

  • Good adhesion to metals and plastics;
  • Hydrophobic behavior during curing stage;
  • Excellent hydrolytic stability;
  • Available with Closed Mix and Pour Delivery System;
  • Low exoteric reaction temperature.
  • Process figures

    Mixing Ratio (pbw) A : B 100 : 42
    Pot life (when mixed) At 5°C 39 min
    At 23°C 20 min
    At 40°C 11 min

    Scotchcast 40G Usage information:

    The resin is shipped in two-chamber plastic pouches with peelable barrier in the correct stoichiometric propotion. This type of packaging assures the correct mixing ratio for resin applying.

    The packaging includes a Closed Mix and Pour Delivery System. The integrated pouring spout is opened while attaching the mixed resin bag to the housing of the joint or by using the supplied opener.

    Additional usage information, concerning gel time, storage, viscosity, density and so on is given in the table below:
