Splicing Wires Without Solder

If you can’t use solder to join your wires, a splice that winds the wires together will get the job done just as well. The best way to splice wires is to wrap them together tightly, using multiple twists to ensure maximum contact between the two wire sections.

Can you solder without flux?

Bear in mind though, most common solder wire is rosin-core, it has one or more cores of flux inside of it. The kind of solder plumbers use has no flux because they apply the flux externally. So you could solder with that solder. At low heat the solder might not melt fast enough, and a cold solder joint may result.

Is it safe to use duct tape on electrical wires?

In fact, don’t use duct tape for ANYTHING. If you’re trying to cap the exposed end of a wire, use a wire nut. If you’re using a bare wire for some crazy reason and you want it coated, replace the wire with an insulated one or use heat-shrink tubing. It shifts over time, leaving a sticky mess and possibly exposed wires.

Can electrical tape melt?

Electrical tape may not have a clear melting point but a glass transition temperature or smoke point instead. Tape is usually made of a mixture of polymers and the cheap stuff is mostly vinyl. In general I would use the service temperature supplied by the manufacturer rather then try to melt the tape.

Can you use super glue to connect wires?

super glue (cyanoacrylate glue) is a good insulator. i have heard of people using it to provide extra hold on wire wrap boards. its not doing the job of solder though, its not providing the electrical connection but rather just keeping it from coming unwrapped.
