While Cramolin is very good, I caution, excessive amounts turn corrosive. I
prefer to apply to a Q-Tip and wipe on and then wipe off. The "5"
represents the percentage of Cramolin to dispersant. Thus a 5% solution.
Actually Cramolin is a discontinued product. There are replacements sold by
CAIG Labs. Here's a link that may help.
I understand that Pro Gold or DeoxIT from Caig Labs works equally well and
it is environmentally safe.
