Fast acting deoxidizing solution cleans, improves conductivity, lubricates & protects.

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

*Note: Solution dilution differs with applicators. Higher solutions (25% and 100%) contain a great amount (or pure) of Deoxit D100 cleaning solution without propellants and solvents, and therefore require less liquid for your application. Lower solutions (5%) contain propellants and solvents for greater flushing action. Both high and low solutions leave a trace of Deoxit for conitnued cleaning and protection.

  • "For more than just contacts" by samplerman on 11/17/2013

    I've used DeOxit for over 20 years in my recording studio and around my house. I cant imagine not using it. I drive a 2000 Sportage and use DeOxit on everything from battery contacts to squeaky hinges. The truck runs like it was new. Also try using DeOxit on scratched CDs or DVDs when trying to play or copy...just be sure to wipe off excess before inserting into your player or duplicator. Also beware not to get this product on or near any LCD screens. The paraffin based carrier (the secret to using small amounts of DeOxit) migrates to hidden places...including the adhesives that connect circuits on your LCD...causing permanent damage ...this also goes for rubber buttons on remotes. DeOxit is a god-send for most everything electronic...and then some.

  • "DeoxIt works...Just pick the proper "form" for your application." by Pawlukiewicz on 12/13/2011
    Overall: 5 out of 5

    The 5% stuff works well and I use it first. The adjustable (volume) spray helps control application. Save the 100% stuff with the precision needle tip when you can get into the pot / wiper / contact. Yes it is expensive compared to general 'tuner cleaner', but small, controlled applications go a long way. Is OK for most plastics, always test first, and have not had a problem with old phenolic switches. But I never saturate them either. Remember that some contacts are silver, so don't 'scrape off' the black silver's conductive and protects the base metal.

  • "Another great product" by MRGLASS on 6/6/2011

    It is not a 100% solution but it can get in where the needle dispenser cannot. Works
