Heavy Duty Lugs
Crimping Facts :
- Anchor Marine Grade™ lugs are manufactured from heavy duty annealed tinned copper, providing for maximum current flow.
- 100% tin plated copper resists corrosion from salt and moisture.
- Seamless barrel design allows for maximum strength when crimped.
- Closed end design seals out moisture so cables stay dry and corrosion free.
Fine stranded cables, those with a large quantity of small-diameter strands, will improve a crimped joint’s performance. Finer strands more readily fill the inside contour of a terminal as it is crimped. This even distribution of strands allows imposed loads to be distributed more evenly.
Air pockets or voids in a crimp joint with coarse stranding increases resistance and temperature which in turn leads to a faster rate of corrosion.
