Data Sheet
Description
September 2012
3M™ Scotchcast™ Flexible Power Cable Splicing Kits 82-F and 82-BF Series are flexible
inline and tap splices for use on non-shielded portable power cables and cords. These
splices are designed to be used on single or multiple conductor cables, depending on the
voltage rating.
The 82-F1 and 82-F2 inline splices will accommodate a single-conductor cable rated up to
5 kV or single and multiple conductor cables and cords rated up to 1000 Volts (600/2000
Volts mine portable cable rating). The combined cable diameter range for these two is
0.25 – 1.2 inches (6 – 30 mm), with a maximum single conductor size of 4/0 AWG.
The 82-BF1 tap splice can accommodate cables and cords rated up to 1000 Volts
(600/2000 Volts mine portable cable rating) ranging in diameter from 0.25 – 0.8 inches (6 –
20 mm) with a maximum single conductor size of 1/0 AWG.
These splice kits are based on 3M™ Scotchcast™ Flame-Retardant Compound 2131 for
toughness, flexibility, environmental protection and flame retardancy. The completed
splices carry Mine Safety and Health Administration Acceptance 07-KA060002-MSHA when
installed in accordance with the included instructions.
Kit Contents
Each kit contains the following materials as appropriate to make one splice or cable repair
(connectors are not included due to kit range and conductor size specificity):

Features
One-piece removable mold
3M™ Scotchcast™ Flame-Retardant Compound 2131
Scotch® Rubber Splicing Tape 23, for sealing mold ends
3M™ Three-M-Ite™ Elek-Tro-Cut™ Abrasive Cloth 80J Grit
Instructions showing proper installation techniques for splicing non-shielded portable
power cables and cords

MSHA Accepted – carries Mine Safety and Health Administration acceptance 07KA060002-MSHA

3M™ Scotchcast™ Flame-Retardant Compound 2131 – self-curing resin bonds to
itself and most modern cable jackets, and requires no torch or other external heat
source; forms a splice or repair that is abrasion resistant and flame retardant

Semi-flexible compound – allows “permanent” splice to bend with cable; for
installation, handling, reeling, etc.

Smooth tapered splice profile – eliminates cable hang-ups and splice end-lifting

3M™ Scotchcast™ Flexible Power Cable Splicing Kits 82-F and 82-BF
Installation
3M™ Scotchcast Flexible Power Cable Splicing Kits 82-F and 82-BF are designed for use
with compression inline connectors (82-F) and compression "C" tap connectors (82-BF).
Typical De-Mold/Cure Time:
To test for cure, the compound in the splice mold funnels is checked for tack. When the
compound is no longer tacky, the splice is considered ready to de-mold. Full strength and
bond are attained after the resin has fully cured. Cure and de-mold time may vary,
depending on ambient conditions. Some approximate times are indicated in the table below.
