Molded Rubber High-Voltage Electrical Connection Boot


  • Molded Rubber High-Voltage Electrical Connection Boot Ref: 105528, 105547, 105548

    Rubber Insulative Connector Boot

    The parts pictured here are used in lower-cost countries and are designed to slide over exposed panel connections to protect equipment operators from the high voltage connections.  The material has been specially formulated to be oil, alkaline & UV resistant. The material is also flame retarding and the colors are brilliant to insure against improper connections.

    The full product line includes eight colors for proper identification of AC/DC current and positive/negative/ground anywhere in the

  • world. Additionally, there are two different rubber protective caps, one for the connector when not in use and one for the panel outlet when not in use.

    Once again, Custom Rubber Corp. and our customer have made small but important enhancements in design including:

    • Innovative tool design that completely eliminated all parting lines across the mating cylindrical ends.
    • Raised o-ring beads on the large ID of the rubber connector that holds securely with either the panel outlet or the protective cover.
    • Proprietary material that is self-lubricating. The interference fit between the connectors and the panel mount is significantly tighter than the industry standard, but the proprietary component that leaches out the surface continuously lubricates the connector resulting in increased protection without increased difficulty in making the connection.

    Producing a self-lubricating compound that was processable in the mold proved difficult initially, but the strategic partnerships with our rubber material suppliers resulted in a compound that worked. The next step was to duplicate the physical properties in eight different colors, from vibrant yellow and orange, to deep red and green.

    Ultimately, our customer's design enhancements, and our ability to produce near-perfect parts consistently has resulted in significant demand within the industry.
