Would these aluminum splicers be good for #4 wire with max 60 amps? Thanks.

    Hi Sean,

    The pic or Link did not make ..

    What you are looking for on these types of devices is a marking that says:  Cu-Al,   or Al.   There may well be a specified range of wire gauges that the device will accept.

    Always use an anti-ox type compound,  after burnishing the Al conductors,   like NoAlOx (r).

    FWIW,   Vic
