How to protect outdoor speaker wire connections
#1
I've been googling, but i can't figure out the right search term.

When I put my outdoor speakers up, i was advised to get (____) epoxy type crap to protect the posts from weather/rust. I got this little tube of stuff that I put on, it dried within a few hours, but was relatively easy to take off. But, I threw the tube away a few years back, and now can't remember what the hell it was.

Anybody know what that stuff is called?

Dielectric Grease?

no, it was some form of poly-something or other that's basically liquid rubber, easily removable.

Not silicone, right? You use that to seal stuff in the shower so it doesn't get wet, but I'm not thinking it's "easy to remove".

You can use RTV silicone gasket sealer. you can get it at any autoparts store. Typically comes in red or blue or clear. Its easy to remove, sets to a pliable rubber consistancy

i would consider the dialetric grease also.. that is what is used to protect the exposed copper that connects to the grounding rods normaly.

I keep picturing dialectic grease. I guess you apply it to people in order to help them understand both sides of the argument.

I think another word for that is "CASH".
