Q: (18581)

I’m in France and my job is repairing audio products. I use DeoxIT F5 to clean potentiometers and DeoxIT D5 for switches and encoders – GREAT products. Please can you tell me what products (grease) can I use after cleaning potentiometers and encoders. I have DeoxIT FaderGrease DFG-213, can I use it in potentiometers carbon and plastic (after cleaning with F5) and in rotary encoders (after cleaning with D5).

It is better D5 or F5 to clean rotary encoders ?

Thanks,
Franc

Hello Franc,

You can use the DeoxIT® FaderGrease after either the D5 of F5 to add tactile feel.
As to using D5 or F5 on rotary encoders, it depends.  If just flushing and lubrication, use the F5.  If there is oxidation or corrosion (on metals), use the D5.

Good luck and thank you for using our products!
