Contact Cleaners

Contact cleaners are comprised of a chemical mixture which has been designed to remove or prevent the build-up of oxides and other contaminants on the surface of switches, connectors or any other electrical equipment.

The main purpose of using the contact cleaner is to remove dirt, oil, grease and metallic oxides from the surface of parts. The cleaner improves the performance and reliability of your electronic equipment by preventing contact failure.

There are dedicated contact cleaners to evaporate immediately from the surface leaving no residue.

Generally, we should avoid using contact cleaners that contain lubricants unless it is safe to do so. The lubricant has the following benefits:

  • Reducing corrosion and friction
  • Protecting any metal surfaces
  • Non-flammable

Where to use Contact Cleaners

The contact cleaner works on electronic components, ignition points, electronic controls, relays and other areas that need a product to evaporate quickly.

Contact cleaner has a shelf life of at least 72 months as long it is stored correctly. Aerosols should not exceed a stored temperature above 50°C and should avoid a direct heat and naked flame.

Contact cleaners are plastic safe, quick-drying, and you can be confident that no residues are left on the treated equipment.

Please make a note that some contract cleaners are not for use on live machinery.

Multi-purpose cleaners are non-conductive, non-corrosive and non-flammable. Cleaners provide an immediate cleaning result to your surfaces.

It is advisable to view your product carefully as cleaning has to be followed by the manufacturer recommendations or restrictions. Before the purchase it is recommended to check the product specifications.
