Contact Cleaners & Lubrication

Contact Cleaners

Contact cleaner is made up of special additives and cleaning agents to remove oxidation, sulfides formation and erase of contaminants on electronic and electrical connection surfaces to reduce the contact resistance of electronic devices,  improve radiofrequency and data transmission. 

CAIG Laboratories offers an extensive array of contact cleaners, lubricants, enhancers, preservatives, and accessories for electronic, electrical and mechanical applications.

CAIG's familiar and trusted DeoxIT® range of high-performance contact cleaners are being used in the field of Audio-Video, Telecommunication, Avionics, Computer Servers, Marine, Photography Equipments and more. CAIG's infamous range of DeoxIT® series of contact cleaners include:

Type of Contact Cleaners

DeoxIT® D-Series

Unique Contact Cleaner, Rejuvenator and Protection

DeoxIT® D-Series contact cleaner dissolves oxides and sulfides that form on metal surfaces. This restores the contact's integrity and leaves a thin microscopic layer that protects the metal.

Special additives improve conductivity and prevent dissolved oxides from re-attaching, keeping them in suspension and allowing them to be easily dispersed by the mechanical action of the contact.

  • Removes oxidation & corrosion
  • Improves conductivity without causing shorts
  • Virtually eliminate intermittent signals
  • Improves signal quality
  • Increase data speeds
  • Ideal for stationary and parts subject to vibration
  • Reduces wear and abrasion
  • Actively displaces moisture & contaminates
  • Cleans, lubricates & seals connections 

For reference, DeoxIT® D-Series has approximately 20% cleaning action.

  • ALL Metal Connections
  • Batteries, Light Bulbs
  • Switches and Relays
  •  Jacks and Plugs
  • Harnesses, Grounding Blocks
  •  RCA jacks, XLRs, USB, HDMI, Ethernet, etc.

DeoxIT® Gold G-Series

Contact Enhancer, Conditioner & Protector

DeoxIT® Gold G-Series (formerly ProGold), is a unique conditioning solution that improves conductivity and provides long-lasting protection on gold, base metals and other precious metal contacts and connections (gold, silver, rhodium, copper, bronze, nickel, etc.).

DeoxIT® Gold is the only product that actually penetrates plated surfaces, molecularly bonding to the base metals to seal and protect both surfaces.

  • Removes oxidation & corrosion
  • Improves conductivity without causing shorts
  • Virtually eliminate intermittent signals
  • Improves signal quality
  • Increase data speed
  • Ideal for stationary and parts subject to vibration
  • Reduces wear and abrasion
  • Actively displaces moisture & contaminates
  •  Cleans, lubricates & seals connections 

For reference, DeoxIT® D-Series has approximately 20% cleaning action.

Use on plated connectors, contacts and metal surfaces for maximum performance and protection.

Recommended for critical applications where only slight cleaning action is necessary. If the surface looks clean, applying DeoxIT D-Series contact cleaner first is usually not necessary. DeoxIT® Gold is designed to dissolve small amounts of oxidation. Apply DeoxIT® Gold after DeoxIT® D-Series contact cleaner on plated metal surfaces, except where noted with DeoxIT® Shield S-Series below. The more critical the connection or part, especially low current applications, DeoxIT® Gold should be the final step

DeoxIT® Fader F-Series

Moving Contact Lubricant for Conductive Plastic Faders and Controls

DeoxIT® Fader F-Series is a precision lubricant for moving contact surfaces (faders, switches, potentiometers and other mechanisms with sliding surfaces). It replenishes lubrication lost on surfaces that have been cleaned with solvents or other cleaning solutions.

  • Dissolves oxidation & corrosion
  • Formulated for Conductive Plastics & Carbon-Based Controls
  • Lubricates Faders, Switches, Potentiometers &
    other Mechanisms with Sliding Surfaces
  • Maintains Optimum Signal Quality
  • Reduces Wear & Abrasion
  • Maintains Tactile Feel
  • Temperature Range: -26°C to 150°C
  • Lubrication/protection of plastic-to-plastic parts (faders)
  • Plastic-to-metal parts (faders, linear sliders – dot matrix printers)
  • Metal-to-metal parts (sliding and slow rotating metal parts, locks, bearings)
  • Carbon-based controls (potentiometers) and membrane switches
    (mouse pointers, touch keypads).

DeoxIT® Shield S-Series

Lubricant & Protectant For Better Metal Electronic Connections & Contacts

Recommended after DeoxIT® D-Series contact cleaner for best protection and NEW metal surfaces, usually in the manufacturing process. It is also ideal where high degrees of pollution (sulfur, salts, acids, etc.) are present. DeoxIT® Shield S-Series should be applied to a clean surface – after using DeoxIT® D-Series or other cleaning methods.  For reference, DeoxIT® Shield has 0% cleaning action.

  •  Improves Conductivity
  •  Lubricates & Preserves
  •  Long-Lasting in Severe Environments
  •  Reduces Intermittent Connections
  •  Works on Stationary & Moving
  •  Contacts and Connections
  •  Stabilizes Connections Between Similar and Dissimilar Metals
  •  Reduces Arcing & RFI
  •  Reduces Wear & Abrasion
  •  Temperature Range: -34 C (-29 F) to 210 C (410 F

For reference, DeoxIT® Shield has 0.0% cleaning action

  • Severe Environment Connections
  •  Batteries, Light Bulbs
  • Switches and Relays
  • Jacks and Plugs
  • Harnesses, Grounding Blocks
  • RCA jacks, XLRs, USB,
  • HDMI, Ethernet, etc.
