DeoxIT : Computer Hardware Buyers’ Glossary



A contact cleaner and preservative. Née Cramolin. DeoxIT Red cleans and preserves. DeoxIT Blue aka PreserveIT, aka DexoxIT Shield just preserves. You need only enough to create a film one molecule thick. It pretects the surface from the air, but gets out the way when the contacts are pressed together. It migrates. I use it for external connectors, light bulbs, cleaning AC (Alternating Current) prongs, headphone prongs, debit card chip connectors…

You put a small amount on the contact to be cleaened with a Kleenex or a foam tip swap, then wipe it clean.

This gives you a sampler of different kinds of specialised contact treatments. Use DeoxIT D100 for overall cleaning, Gold for gold plated contacts, Shield (blue) to coat non-gold cleaned contacts against further oxidation and Fader for carbon based controls, such as slide controls or carbon pots, or connectors on plastic multiconnects as found in cellphones. Amazon database says it does not have it is stock, but the website says it does.
