When do I use DeoxIT® FaderLube?
DeoxIT® FaderLube is formulated to lubricate and enhance signal transmission on conductive plastics and carbon-based controls.
DeoxIT® contact cleaner and DeoxIT® GOLD, on the other hand, are formulated for conductive metal surfaces.
Problems occur on conductive sliding controls when dust, dirt or spilled drinks accumulate in the switch. This degrades the performance and displaces or wears away the original lubrication of the switch.
On conductive membrane and pointing devices (mouse pads), oil, grease and acids from fingers accumulate on the surface and reduce their effectiveness over time. DeoxIT® FaderLube displaces contamination accumulated on these conductive plastic surfaces and enhances the transmission characteristics of the switch or membrane.
An alternative to this treatment is to:
Apply DeoxIT® (D100S-2) according to package directions, and manipulate the channels several times (40-50) to distribute the product and assist in breaking up the contaminants.
The following day, if the surface is still not as responsive as it should be, repeat the above step.
