DeoxIT® Fader F-Series – Moving Contact Lubricant for Conductive Plastic Faders and Controls
Part No. FN5S-2N Mini-Spray:
Using Low-Med-High Adjustable Valve
Applicator: Non-Flammable Spray, provides precise control and application of DeoxIT® Fader. Quick-Dry, Non-Drip Solvent.
Formulation: 5% DeoxIT® Fader (active ingredient), 75% Solstice PF (carrier solvent), 20% propellant
Use: Solvent evaporates quickly, providing precise control, no dripping and overspray. Is ideal for applying on delicate connectors and components on and in equipment.
Notes: Use when over spray is an issue. Formulation safe on plastics. Always recommend testing for compatibility, especially on critical/sensitive parts, and vintage equipment with aging ABS plastic(s). Will not swell rubber. For more flushing action and non-critical applications, we recommend Part Nos. F5S-H6. Need more tactile feel, use the DeoxIT® Fader Grease after cleaning with DeoxIT® Fader F-Series.
Metal and/or Plastic: Not sure if faders have plastic and/or metal components, we recommend using DeoxIT D-Series, Part No. D100S-2 (100% DeoxIT spray).
DeoxIT® Fader F-Series is a precision lubricant and cleaner for moving contact surfaces (faders, switches, potentiometers and other mechanisms with sliding surfaces).
It replenishes lubrication lost on surfaces that have been cleaned with solvents or other cleaning solutions.
Over time these conductive plastic components lose their original lubrication from wear and/or repeated cleaning. Dust, dirt, drink spills and other contamination also degrade the components’ lubricant. The need for re-lubrication is necessary to avoid excess wear and abrasion to the plastic surfaces.
Another use for DeoxIT® Fader is on conductive membrane switches and components. Oil, grease and acids build up on the membrane surfaces due to repeated finger contact and can lead to device malfunction. Applying DeoxIT® Fader will provide a long-lasting barrier against these types of contamination. The oil, grease and acids will be displaced above the DeoxIT® Fader layer preventing contact with the plastic membrane.
For reference, DeoxIT® Fader F-Series has approximately 1% cleaning action.
