Phillips Industries Introduces WEATHER-TITETM M2 Dual Pole Plug Connection with Superior Corrosion Protection


Santa Fe Springs, CA (January 29, 2019) Phillips Industries has introduced the WEATHER-TITETM M2 liftgate electrical assembly with the only dual pole plug connection on the market today that offers superior corrosion protection and is interchangeable with any standard J3082 liftgate dual pole socket.

Phillips Industries designed the WEATHER-TITE M2 for dual pole applications specifically to eliminate corrosion build up that can easily occur at the coupled liftgate connection, slowing down or completely blocking the charge to the liftgate batteries, resulting in downtime and delayed deliveries. The WEATHER-TITE M2 liftgate assembly is just the latest product developed by Phillips Industries designed to combat the high cost of corrosion.

The WEATHER-TITE M2, with unbreakable, non-corrosive plug housing completely molded to the electrical cable, is a durable solution that is impervious to water and contaminants at the back of the plug. The moisture blocking WEATHER-TITE seal at the front of the plug keeps contaminants from entering the socket cavity, preventing corrosion from developing and traveling past the union inside the socket and into the liftgate electrical system. Assemblies are available with heavy duty jacketing in straight and coiled versions and come in varying lengths with a choice of two or four gauge fine stranded copper wiring.

Visit Phillips Industries in Booth #713 at HDAW 2019 at the Mirage, Las Vegas, January 28-31, to view the WEATHER-TITE M2 along with other corrosion fighting solutions.
