Hi, Cedric. Sanchem offers No-Ox-Id compound Special A, which is designed for electrical contact surfaces -- things like bus bar joints and cable terminations. I think we're getting warmer :-)

Reputedly, the paste acts as a grease to facilitate a tight joint; and is electrically conductive; and it coats the components to deter corrosion at the joint; and some of these pastes dissolve the thin aluminum oxide on aluminum components to improve conductivity. Like everything else in the world, they probably work better than nothing and not quite as well as their most glowing sales literature :-)

A. Hi Ahmed. Its' not really "grease", it's a greasy compound designed for the purpose. We appended your question to a previous thread which explains its use.
