    Greetings, All

    I 'm doing some under water test but my alligator clips are rusting due to the fact that they are not
    coated with rust proof materials. Does anyone know which material to use to rust proof alligator clips
    (I purchased them from radio shack) The alligator clips are used to transmit voltage underwater but they rust after a day.

    If I paint them with a rust proof material, the material will still have to be able to conduct electricity
    any ideas what i can use?


    Thanks

    to be able to conduct electricity
    Offhand, it sounds a bit like electrolytic corrosion. In which case little
    short of Platinum electrodes will survive. Maybe change to A.C.
