    What is an "environmental splice"?

  • #2
    splices

    I started using the splices when I worked on boats for a living prior to my navy career. They are like regular crimp slices but the outer sleeve is separate and is a heat shrink material. The ends also have a low temp potting compound so they make a complete seal when you heat them up with your heat gun or BIC. If you use the bic, only use the blue flame not the yellow tip of the flame!
    You can get them at marine supply stores or some auto parts stores have them.
    They are color coded by wire size.
    red, blue, yellow
    I try to use these on all connections exposed to the elements
