Failure of electrical connectors is the leading cause of electrical system failures. Here’s the fix.
Apply AX7-C connector lubricant anti-corrosion protectant to any electrical contacts to dramatically improve the reliability of your connectors by displacing water, eliminating fretting corrosion and stopping general chemical corrosion. This is a corrosion inhibitor that is easily applied as a thin film using the fine bristled applicator brush, provided in the bottle’s cap. It can also be used as a dip or spray. Leaves no greasy, silicone, waxy, gummy film. This protectant will keep connectors working the way you expect them to.”free of corrosion”.
AX7-C benefits & features
Best connector lubricant formulation there is and better than oils. Chosen by the military as one of the two product formulations found to work and not make matters worse out of many tested
Manufactured to meet and exceed military specification Mil-L-87177A for corrosion protection. Also meets & exceeds Mil-C-81309 for type I, II & II corrosion protection.
Hydrophobic. It displaces and excludes water from the contact’s mating faces even better than PPE’s (polyphenyl ethers).
Reduces sliding friction so contacts connect with lower mating force. They experience reduced wear with repeated connection and disconnection. Static friction stays the same so that contact’s retention force is unchanged
Prevents contact fretting corrosion that can plague contacts that experience any vibration, even minor like from fans
Synthetic and contains no silicone or petroleum distillates. Not a waxy, oily or hard coating. Doesn’t attract dirt
Bonds to metal creating a tenacious film that prevents corrosive materials getting to the metal. Film is self-healing and survives being scratched
Film does not migrate, has very low vapor pressure, is very long lasting and will operate at whatever operation temperature the contact itself is rated for. It has been found that AX7-C corrosion protection often increases over time
Won’t damage any metals or materials typically used in electrical contacts
Built-in UV dye makes applied material glow under ultraviolet light so coverage is easily verified
