Scotchlok™ 3570G-N
Connector Sealing Packs
 

Product Description

Scotchlok 3570 Connector Sealing Packs insulate and provide protection for electrical spring connectors against dust, soil, water, and other environmental elements. Each sealing pack contains a specific amount of Scotchcast 400 epoxy resin and will accommodate one Scotchlok Y, R, G, B, 3M Brand 212, 312 or 512 electrical spring connector. Scotchcast 400 electrical insulating resin is a two-part epoxy insulating and encapsulating resin. This resin, mixed in its unique container bag, generates its own heat to cure. Its compatibility with spring connectors makes 400 resin an excellent insulator and sealer  for electrical spring connectionsResin Features

  • Thermosetting, therefore will never melt or run once it cures
  • Generates its own heat to cure
  • Oil resistant
  • Bonds to itself
  • Tough
  • Stable at elevated temperatures (up to 121°C)
  • Unipak container bag for mixing the resin and encapsulating the appropriate spring connectors
  • Excellent multi-purpose moisture sealing resin
Applications
  • To insulate electrical spring connectors
  • For potting and protecting a wide variety of electrical spring connections
  • For sealing against dust, soil, water, and other environmental elements

Specifications
Product
The material must be supplied in a two-part polyethylene bag with a barrier separating a prepolymer and a polyol. The barrier must be capable of being broken to permit mixing the two parts without opening the bag.

 

Engineering/Architectural
The material must be Scotchcast 400 epoxy resin. It must be packaged in the 3M Unipak two-part polyethylene bag. The resin must be mixed within the Unipak container simply by separating the barrier between the two parts of the bag and between the two parts of the bag and the bag.
Installation
Turn power off before installing connector, then make connection per manufacturer's instructions. All electrical work should be done according to appropriate electrical codes.
Note:
When temperature is below 50°F (10°C), keep resin in warm place prior to mixing (for example, in an inside pocket next to the body).
1. Thoroughly clean and dry the surface of the substrate to which the material is desired to bond.
2. Remove guard bag, using caution not to damage
3. Grip both edges of bag at the center barrier (FIG. 1), and wrinkle and flex the bag across the barrier. This will weaken the barrier.


FIG. 1

4. Squeeze the CLEAR SIDE of the resin, forcing the resin through the center barrier.
5. Mix thoroughly to a uniform color by squeezing contents back and forth 25-30 times.
6. Squeeze resin to one end of bag, and cut off other end (FIG. 2).

Maintenance
Scotchlok 3570 Connector Sealing Packs are stable for a period of two years from date of manufacture providing the Guard Bag (the white aluminized bag) is not opened when stored under the following recommended storage conditions. Store behind present stock in a clean dry place at a temperature of 70°F (21°C) and 40 to 50% relative humidity. Good stock rotation is also recommended. If the guard bag is removed the shelf life could be reduced to as little as two weeks under conditions of high humidity. A Scotchlok 3570 Connector Sealing Pack is not impaired by freezing; however it should be warmed to at least 32°F (0°C) before being mixed or poured.
