Terminals are a necessity for any electrical systems. Heat shrink butt splices provide a rugged, environmentally sealed connection that is meant to last. These butt splices are designed for use with 8 AWG wires.
How do you use 8 AWG heat shrink butt splices? You start by preparing your wires. This means cutting and striping them to the correct length. Every butt splice has an internal indentation of it where your wires should meet. So now, you insert the wire into the butt splice making sure the tip touches the indentation. Using the proper tool, you need to crimp the side of the butt splice which creates a solid connection. Repeat the process on the other side of the butt splice. Next, perform a tug test to make sure that the wires do not pull out. After that, use the proper heat gun or torch to correctly heat the outer heat shrink.
Why use 8 AWG heat shrink butt splices? Heat shrink butt splices offer the highest level of protection available. By using these splices you are creating a moisture proof seal that will last. Heat shrink butt splices protect connections from physical abuse and abrasion. They also protect from water, salt and other corrosive compounds.
