What type of anti-corrosion do you guys use on wire connectors?
I use air. Widely available, and the price is right.
If you mean what type of dry splice connectors, I usually use Wade or 3M.
Just curious if anyone used any paste inside the connectors...I have seen some used inside alarm wiring connectors.
Alarms might involve lower levels of current. Not aluminum wiring, I'd think, which is the one application where I'd want some anti-corrosion applied.
I've seen glue, bubble gum, caulk, and Spears blue dri-splice sealant in wire nuts, which have all failed and allowed moisture in causing corrosion.
The paste you are referring to may be silicone sealant. Is it white in color?
If silicone is indeed what he is referring to,,, is there any other (correct) way to do it?
