An apparatus and method for protection of electrical contacts as well as a process for splicing electrical wires that are to be exposed to an adverse environment. The protection apparatus ensures that the electrical contacts are protected when they are otherwise located in an adverse environment. In a particular embodiment, the apparatus includes a connector, an insulating sleeve adapted to retain the connector, and an encapsulant. The encapsulant, which is disposed with protection apparatus, e.g. the insulating sleeve, has a cone penetration value of 100 to 350 (10.sup.-1 mm) and an ultimate elongation of at least 200% and preferably an elastic modulus of less than 10.sup.7 dynes/cm.sup.2.
