    Hey guys just wanted to know what you thought about this stuff?
    I found it at builders hardware.

    Do think its waterproof or water resistant?

    Or use heatshrink. Put silicone between the heatshrink and the two ends, heatgun over the heatshrink should push out excess silicone. Leave to cure and voila waterproof joint

    It is a resin so it will be waterproof when fully hardened.
    The IP rating of 68 indicates the following:
    first number shows protection against solids, 6 = Total protection against dust
    Second number shows protection against liquids, 8 = Protected against long periods of immersion under pressure

    Hi Butcherman

    I have seen larger versions of this system used very succesfully on electrical cabling in the Okavango Delta. As far as I know it is 100% waterproof.
    If used correctly ;):p
