X-Sealant Gel Application and Use Questions


Xmultiple's Engineering Department

Listed below are frequently asked question regarding Gel application and use.

How often does this Gel have to be re-applied?

Answer: The number of times plugs are inserted will determine the number of times gel must be applied. If the gel is applied and the male plug is inserted, you will never have to reapply the gel again until 2 years or more of service. This is under normal useage conditions in a protected environment. If multiple insertions occur you will have to reapply the gel with each insertion. This is our recommendation however this gel is design to not run, drip or evaporate, so this is not absolutely required to reapply gel and the determination must be made by the user.

How many insertions of the male jack can there be before the Gel
needs to be re-applied?

Answered above. Xmultiple recommends Gel is reapplied with every insertion.

What is the recommended best practices for applying the Gel?

Answer: The 3oz tube was designed to make the application of the gel easy for the user. The gel is applied directly from the tube into the female connector. A small drop inserted on the contact pins inside the female is all that is required. The male plug is then inserted into the connector.

Could we potentially apply this to our jacks in the manufacturing process?

Answer: Yes, Users can have the Gel applied during the assembly process of their products.

The answer is also "Yes" if Xmultiple applies the Gel during our process of manufacturing a connector for a customer. However, if Xmultiple applies the Gel during our manufacturing of a connector the cost of the Gel inserted into the jacks during the manufacturing increases the pricing by 100% and has a MOQ of 25K units.
