Anti-Oxide Compound / Penetrox

Item # 56

Penetrox oxide-inhibiting compounds produce low initial contact resistance, seal out air and moisture, prevent oxidation or corrosion, exhibit superior weathering characteristics, are usable over wide temperature ranges, and provide a high conductivity "gas-tight" joint. All Penetrox compounds contain homogeneously suspended metal particles. The suspended metal particles assist in penetrating thin oxide films, act as electrical "bridges" between conductor strands, aid in gripping the conductor, improve electrical conductivity and enhance the integrity of the connection. The specially formulated Penetrox compounds are for use with compression and bolted connectors providing an improved service life for both copper and aluminum connections. Additionally, the nontoxic compounds are an excellent lubricant for threaded applications reducing galling and seizing.
