Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR SEALING ELECTRICAL TERMINALS
Abstract:
A system and device (100, 200, 500, 600, 700) for sealing a plurality of electrical wires (16) to a wire attachment portion (14) of an electrical terminal (10) is disclosed. The device includes a first piece of heat shrink tubing (102, 202, 502, 602, 702) having a predetermined length that is placed over the electrical wires (16) such that one end extends over the wire attachment portion (14) of the electrical terminal. A high viscosity layer (104, 204, 504, 604, 704) having a predetermined length and a smaller diameter than the first piece of heat shrink tubing, is placed completely or partially inside the end of the first piece of heat shrink tubing, and a band of sealant/adhesive (106, 206, 506, 606, 706) is placed within the first piece of heat shrink tubing adjacent to the high viscosity layer.
