Anode cap.

An Anode cap is a shrinkable sleeve used to seal and protect a critical connection between the wire and the anode.

It helps with stress control at the anode exit and provides a watertight assembly as well as general electrical insulation. Ideal for protection against corrosion. It is the ideal solution to the problem of premature system failure due to corrosion causing lead wire to come out of the anode.

It is made of cross-linked Polyolefin with Mastic applied to the interior to ensure a watertight assembly in accordance with IP68.
