Q: (18386)

I know DeoxIT® D-Series and DeoxIT® Gold are good to for cleaning anything with metal to metal contacts – buy the way, they are the best products, hands down! But what do I use to clean the potentiometers that are carbon? Also, many pots have both carbon and metal parts, what should I then use?

A:

Our DeoxIT® Fader is formulated for strictly carbon-based faders and carbon-based controls.
Depending on how much “feel” you want, use either the F5S-H6 or F100S-L2 sprays.
Then if you want more tactile feel, apply the DeoxIT® Fader Grease, DFG-213-8G after the F5S-6 or F100S-L2.

- - Use the F5 (includes a flushing solvent), when you need to clean off surface contamination, i.e. dust, dirt, smoke residue, spilled drinks, etc.
- - Use the F100S (no solvents, 100% Fader), when you just require lubrication and enhancing.

You may need one of our new Perfect Straw attachments to get into tight spaces:

Many faders; linear and rotary, may have both carbon membranes and metal tracks/sliders.  For these we would recommend using the D100S-2 spray.
