High Temperature Wiring Repairs
J-38125 Terminal Repair Kit
High Temperature Wiring
Wiring that is exposed to high temperatures, 135°C (275°F) or higher, for prolonged periods of time may use materials i.e. wires, connectors, and
Use high temperature bulk wire rated at 150°C (302°F) continuous temperature to replace any damaged wire.
Replace any heat shielding that is removed.
Cover any DuraSeal splice sleeves with SCT1 shrink tubing (available in the J-38125 Terminal Repair kit).
After making a wiring repair, ensure that the location of the wiring is not moved closer to the heat source.
Identifying High Temperature Wiring
Wiring that is exposed to high temperature, 135°C (275°F) or higher, for prolonged periods of time need special considerations when making wiring
The J-38125 contains much of the material you will need to perform repairs on areas exposed to high heat. The kit contains the following items:
DuraSeal splice sleeves to crimp and seal connections
High temperature SCT1 shrink tubing to protect the splice sleeves
A large sampling of common electrical terminals
The correct crimp tool to attach the terminals to the wires
The correct tools to remove the terminals from the connectors
The J-38125 does not contain wire that is suitable to high temperature exposure. Use high temperature bulk wire rated at 150°C (302°F) continuous
