3M™ UF1-SPLICE KIT-6 KITS Standard Splice Kit, 600 VAC, 8 AWG, 10 AWG, 12 AWG, 14 AWG Conductor
The UF splice kit consists of a connector insulation assembly and a heat shrink tube. The connector assembly contains four cylindrical set screw connectors separated by a piece of vinyl insulation. The heat shrink tube is a heavy wall, adhesive lined tube. Underground Feeder (UF)-B cables are flat, and typically have three solid conductors without ground or two solid conductors with a ground. They range in size from 8 AWG to 14 AWG. The most common UF cable size is 10 to 14 AWG. The 3M UF splice kit is offered in two versions: UF1 standard kit includes a 1.8 in L terminal connector and an 8 in L of heavy wall, adhesive lined heat shrink tube. UF2 stretcher kit has an 11.7 in terminal connector and a 20 in L of heavy wall, adhesive lined heat shrink tube. The standard kit is used in most of the applications. The stretcher kit is used in situations where a 7 to 10 in section of the cable has been damaged or destroyed. It eliminates two connectors and a short piece of cable during repair.
