  • Manufacturing Origin: USA
  • Note: 3M products offered on a government contract that require country of origin representation must be certified by 3M Trade Compliance. Contact customer service at 800-245-3573 to request a certificate.
  • The designation that a product is Manufactured in the USA means the product undergoes substantial transformation in one of our U.S. Manufacturing plants. Some products contain imported components.
  • 3M™ 8420 Connector Insulator is designed for use on all solid dielectric insulated wires and cable splices. This cold shrink insulator offers moisture-tight sealing while maintaining its prolonged resiliency and pressure. It is ideal for insulating secondary splices, direct-buried or submersible, dig-in repairs and physical protection of high-voltage, air-insulated connectors or lugs. ANSI Certified and RoHS 2011/65/EU Compliant.
  • Suitable for insulating secondary splices, direct-buried or submersible and dig-in repairs
  • Accommodates 2/0 AWG to 250 kcmil conductor sizes
  • Specially designed for primary insulation of solid dielectric insulated wires and cable splicing rated to 1000 volts
  • Withstands temperatures of -40 to 194 degrees F (-40 to 90 degrees C)
  • 10/case
  • ANSI Certified and RoHS 2011/65/EU Compliant
  • Simple installation which requires no tools
  • Made of EPDM rubber which contains no chlorides or sulfur
  • Environmental sealing for communication and other non-electrical applications
  • Insulates cable or connectors within a diameter range of 0.55 - 1.18 in (13,9 - 30,1 mm)
  • 3M™ 8420 Cold Shrink Connector Insulator is an open-ended, tubular sleeve that provides ozone, acids and alkalis resistance. This environmental sealing insulator offers primary electrical insulation for 1 kV-rated applications. The tough, durable, EPDM rubber construction makes the insulator withstand operating temperatures of -40 to 194 degrees F (-40 to 90 degrees C).
