New Connector Seal 7015 from Penray Inc. is designed to be sprayed onto assembled electrical connectors to form a protective seal that keeps out water, road salt, and other debris, while protecting the electrical connectors within.
The company says Penray Connector Seal is a crystal clear coating that effectively seals all kinds of electrical connections. It conforms to any shape or size connection and, being clear, does not obstruct the ability to view the color-coding of electrical wires.
It is also useful for sealing taillights and marker lights on boats and boat trailers. It is fully compatible with all common wiring, connectors, and other electrical components, and is easily removed if connectors need to be replaced.This is not paint, and is not intended for use on body panels; rather it is specifically formulated to insulate and protect electrical connections, keeping contaminants out and electrical connections dry.
Penray chemists in the U.S. crafted this formula to resist temperatures and environments up to 250 degrees F, so the product will withstand the heat generated by electrical connections with high current draw.
Apply to a clean, dry surface and in just seconds it forms a clear protective film of approximately 0.005-0.010 inches. The company says this film is thick enough to afford excellent protection against the elements, yet thin enough to be disassembled and removed easily.
Penray Connector Seal is ideal for harsh conditions, such as when hitching a vehicle to a trailer such as a boat trailer or camper. Harsh conditions are especially common in the trucking industry, where connections are made between tractors and trailers, or in other trucking configurations. Other areas where electrical connections are subjected to water and road debris include RVs, ATVs, other off-road vehicles, and construction vehicles and equipment.
It is all too common to see trailers, RVs, and even medium- and large-size trucks with headlights or running lights not illuminated. Faulty electrical connections are usually to blame, according to Bill Nonnamaker, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Penray
“Technicians often use dielectric grease to help protect such connections, but that product is only helpful in the immediate vicinity of the metal connectors. Our innovative new Connector Seal completely encapsulates the entire connector assembly, so that no moisture or debris can enter. So it can be used as a supplement to, or in lieu of, dielectric grease."
Specific benefits include ease of use, complete encapsulization, crystal clear appearance, durability, and ease of removal. Penray Connector Seal is fast-drying, 50-state compliant, and available in 10-ounce aerosol cans.
