After finding corrosion in PL259s and Type"N" connectors, I started flooding each connector with DC-5, 160 meters through 432 repeaters. I took a repeater connector apart some thirty years later and it looked as new as the day I installed it, I'm a FAN !!


Quoting "Roger (K8RI)" <>:

His uses do not go back far enough, as I said earlier, DC4 Compound (dielectric grease) was developed to use in the spark plug seals on B17s in WWII by Dow Corning. Its use prevented arcing at very high altitudes.
