A splice between at least two multi-wire electric cables is protected from ingress of water by forming a compressible reservoir about the splice, filling the reservoir with a curable liquid sealant, compressing the reservoir to force the liquid sealant to penetrate into the interstices between the individual wires of the splice bundle and into the adjacent cable core and maintaining the reservoir under compression at least for a time sufficient for the sealant to cure.
