You may be wondering where and how to use Contact Cleaners?  Well, regardless of whether it’s oil, grease or corrosion that’s contaminating an electrical component—a contact cleaner can be used to get rid of the foreign elements, and restore components to their original state again

Contact cleaners are, typically, cans filled with compressed air and a cleaning agent that evaporates.  Various brands are available, with variable qualities and specifications but, whichever brand you choose, they should all perform three important functions:

Remove Dirt

A contact cleaner can be used to get rid of all kinds of dirt and contamination from the surfaces of electrical components. Why is this important? Well, foreign elements—such as dirt— can hamper electrical equipment’s performance.

WD-40 Electrical Contact Cleaner Spray has an advanced formula and Smart Straw technology which allows for accurate and precise cleaning of even the most sensitive electronics and electrical equipment.

Please be sure to follow manufacturers guidelines before using anything on electronics.

Remove Oxidation

Perhaps even more importantly, electrical contact cleaners can help to remove oxidation.

A lot of electrical equipment—lower voltage audio switches and sliders for example—face the problem of oxidation on their contact surfaces, again, potentially affecting their performance.  This is where a contact cleaner can help.

Regardless of whether the electrical component has already begun to corrode or you just want to protect from corrosion in the future — WD-40 Electrical Contact Cleaner Spray is a great all-round solution.  The Smart Straw technology helps to ensure that the spray can be targeted accurately and precisely to the parts that need it.

Please be sure to follow manufacturers guidelines before using anything on electronics.

Finally, dirt and dust will adhere to any residue left behind after cleaning, leaving a sticky mess! WD-40 Electrical Contact Cleaner Spray dries quickly and leaves behind no residue whatsoever, so it’s also great for surfaces like plastic and rubber.

It’s easy to see that from removing dirt to taking care of the damage done by oxidation WD-40 Electrical Contact Cleaner Spray can take care of it all.
