Mr. Roy Moquin, from Willow Beach Ontario wrote to us to let us know how our 4229 Connector coating saved him time and money in repairing his damaged outboard boat engine! Read his integral comment below and see how MG Chemicals is really One Company… many solutions.



I just wanted to send a note of thanks for your product 55ml bottle of Connector Coating

I have a 2010 Evinrude 90hp Etec outboard on my boat that I stored in my garage over winter

Unfortunately sometime during storage I picked up some stowaways... mice had found a way into the engine cover and started packing insulation from my garage into the engine tightly packing the space behind wiring and oil injection lines.

As I pulled out the stuffing... I came across my wiring harness for the alternator stator - 6 wires. 3 of them with completely eaten away insulation, 2 with partial bits exposing wire and one with more than an inch of wire completely eaten away.

Advice from marine mechanic indicated it would be ok to "solder something in there" and wrap it up somehow.

I bought the last bottle in the store and some automotive grade heavy grade wire for the patch it was quick work to solder in the repair and separated the other exposed wires.

Everything was coated about 5 times with Connector Coating

I noticed flexibility to withstand vibration, great strength to physically protect the connection from stress

Next day we cruised for 8 hours on the warm weekend on Lake Simcoe and the connections look like they will be intact for the life of the motor!  Saved us serious dollars and time to replace expensive marine parts

Now I have people lining up to fix iphone cables - so much better than heat shrink!

Thanks everyone!  I'll be getting an extra bottle ( or can!!) because I see some many places that need this stuff!
