Cold Shrink Products
Ensure a dynamic, compressive environmental seal for a variety of electrical cable splicing
applications with 3M™ Cold Shrink technology. It dependably protects low to medium voltage
installations, including direct burial, aerial and submersible applications.
3M invented cold shrink technology in 1968. Today, the New Ulm, MN plant covers half a million square feet making several 3M electrical products, including cold shrink. Annually, it uses enough cold shrink core ribbon to wrap around the earth more than once. To put it mildly, it’s come a long way.
3M™ Cold Shrink End Caps are close-ended,
tubular rubber sleeves that are factory expanded and loaded onto a removable core.
When positioned over the end of a cable, or other cylindrical object the core is
removed to provide a reliable environmental seal.

Low Voltage Splices
For installations from 120V to 1kV,
3M offers several low voltage splice options, including 3M-developed cold shrink technology,
heat shrink, resin and tape. 3M™ Low Voltage Splices are reliable in buried, overhead,
indoor or outdoor applications.

Medium Voltage Splices
For medium-voltage applications ranging
from 1kV to 46kV, 3M provides splicing options in molded rubber, tape and resin kits. 3M also
offers splices for underground and indoor use featuring cold shrink technology that 3M pioneered.
