Color-Keyed insulated lugs eliminate the need to cover them with tape, heat-shrink, or cold-shrink insulation after installation. According to the company, the translucent nylon sleeves covering the lugs provide excellent dielectric strength and insulating properties while keeping the color-coded barrel visible. By being pre-positioned on the lug, the nylon sleeves enable the lugs to be crimped on top of the insulation while ensuring that none of the cable is left exposed once the lugs are crimped. In addition, the products range from 8 AWG to 250 kcmil copper conductors, are made of seamless copper tubing with tin electroplating, and have a maximum temperature rating of 105°C (221°F).
