HOW TO INSTALL
CONNECTORS:
1. Select the right connector.
Always use an aluminum connector for
aluminum or copper conductor. And choose
a connector that's marked for the wire size
you're using. Never use a copper connector
on aluminum conductor.
2. Strip carefully.
Remove the insulation without nicking
the wire.
installation and long life, reflecting over 65
years of experience and resulting contribu-
tions to all aspects of the electrical industry.
3. Brush thoroughly.
Always wire-brush the stripped portion of the
wire. An unplated terminal pad, and the
surface to which the terminal will be attached
should also be wire-brushed.
4. Apply PENETROX™
For mechanical connectors, apply PENE-
TROX™ joint compound liberally to the
conductor to prevent the formation of sur-
face oxides once the connection is made.
Also apply PENETROX™ to any terminal
pad.
5. Tighten completely.
For mechanical connectors, use wrench or
screwdriver to securely tighten the aluminum
connectors, as recommended by BURNDY

.
6. Crimp.
For compression connectors, choose the
right die and the right tool. Insert the wire
completely and make the recommended
number of crimps. BURNDY

takes the
guesswork out of aluminum connections
because the connectors and crimp dies are
color coded. Crimps can be easily located
between marks.
