ILSCO’s De-Ox oxide inhibitor is available in three distinct formulas. The standard non-grit, petroleum based formula is suitable for aluminum and copper connections. It performs well keeping moisture and air from penetrating the connection, thus preventing oxidization which prolongs the life and integrity of the connection.
The De-Ox-Z zinc formula contains zinc flake additive and is for use on aluminum or copper connections. Company De-Ox-C copper formula contains copper flake additive formula is designed for use on copper connections. In both cases, the flake-filled formulas act as an abrasive that roughs up the smooth mating surfaces of the conductor and connector, improving the bond between the two surfaces. The advantages of the enhanced flake filled formulas include better holding strength and cooler operating temperatures. The flakes also act as a thickening agent that holds the De-Ox in place or helps keep it packed tightly in the connection, especially under surge conditions.
All three De-Ox formulas are available in a variety of packages and sizes including bottles, tubes and packets.
