Keeping Moisture Out of Your Electrical Connections

Tuesday, July 30, 2013 9:36:47 AM EST

Seal out water before it corrodes your electrical connection.

 
Water, especially salt water, causes corrosion and premature failure of electrical connections when it is allowed to come into contact with your copper wire. You'd be more surprised to hear that water can enter where your wire is stripped. The water can then "wick" its way all throughout the system through the straw that is the insulation or jacket of the wire. This leads to corrosion of not just the portion of the wire exposed to the water, but the entire length of the wire as well as the system the other end of the wire connects to.

With minimal effort, you can prevent the moisture from entering your system - no expertise necessary.
 
The easiest way to seal out moisture is by using heat shrink terminals. After crimping the terminal onto the wire, when heat is applied to the body of the terminal, it shrinks onto the exposed wire and it's jacket to seal out anything from entering the system.

Another option is to use heat shrink tubing to create your own heat shrink terminal. Similar to a heat shrink terminal, the terminal is crimped onto the wire, and then heat shrink tubing is fitted over the top of the exposed wire. Apply heat and now you have a water tight seal.

A bit of upfront effort now can save quite a bit of future maintenance.
