Hi guys,

I am trying to find a coupling for connecting a PVC coated rigid galvanised steel conduit and a sealtite but I cannot find one which is corrosion resistant.

The coating can be applied after the fact. You buy a can of the PVC coating that brushes on. It is the same stuff that is used to touch up the PVC coated conduit.

You can even get the manufacturer of the PVC coated conduit to do it for you if you want.

Incidentally, I have seen places where it looks like they used heat shrink tubing to protect these kind of fittings.

get an ocal coupling, and shave the sleeve off one end with a razor knife.
get an ocal sealtite fitting, and screw it into the coupling end you just trimmed.
put it on the pipe, and away you go.

I know someone makes Teflon or PFA based heat shrink tubing. Oh, hey, looky here.

I have these exact parts in my truck for an ocal job starting tomorrow. I intend to do it the same way.
