Abstract : The present invention relates to elastomeric means for providing electrical connector pin isolation and more particularly to a means for achieving full electrical connection between corresponding pins and sockets of an electrical connector as well as full pin-to-pin electrical isolation while the connector is immersed in a wet environment without requiring removal of the connector from such an environment. Accordingly, it is a general purpose and object of the present invention to provide a means for permitting electrical connectors to be mated underwater such that full electrical isolation is established. Still another object is that such, electrical isolation means exhibit dielectric properties while having a high degree of hydrolytic stability. Patent applications. (JES)
