SCARBOROUGH, Ont. – Grote says it can protect harness and pigtail connections exposed to harsh road conditions like water, salt, dirt and chemicals.

The company has developed Ultra-Seal Corrosion Preventive Sealant, which is applied between the pigtail and lamp connection to create a non-conductive, encapsulating physical barrier.

Ultra-Seal has added tackifiers that increase adhesion to the electrical connection and has a 25 per cent higher non-conductivity dielectric rating than the leading competitor.
