Whats the best way to apply

Stabilant 22A to connectors, with a q-tip? With a brush? Or with?

I usually just put a drop on them. Unless it's a connector where the pins or spades are way inside of a cover or something. Then I would probably use a Q-tip with Stabilant applied judiciously.

Apply directly. I have not had to use it on a connector I wasn't able to drop the stuff directly on.

Mine came with a micro brush that works well for getting on those parts of the connectors that are hard to reach with the tip of the bottle (inner aspect of relay connectors in particular).

Clean well with laquer thinner and use a wife's nail polish applicator.




Safety Tip: Polish bottle should be empty first.

Great info!

Thanks all for your help, my last question is once the Stabilant is applied do you let it dry for a few minutes before reconnecting or just reconnect?

I use a little dielectric grease in my connectors before I reconnect. Seals out moisture, protects against corrosion.

The Air Force presentation they show is quite interesting regarding gold-on-gold connectors exhibiting significant corrosion.

Don't get too excited.


Read MUCH further Gents.


All is NOT as it appears to be presented.

Ask yourself, "... significant fretting corrosion as compared to what?"


Would something else have lasted longer or just been more economical to replace frequently (labor not included). BIG differences.


Remember solar panels NEVER even return the energy it takes to make them. They are total energy losers with very limited realistic application. Houses are NOT "realistic" in the grand scheme of things.

Agreed... and that's why I'm trying to learn more.

Always be leary.

We in the military almost NEVER include the cost of labor.

NEITHER do the sellers of snake oil or good stuff when they try to sell to us.



It is a helluva racket if you do not know what to look for.

Mark, are we discussing the same subject?

I'm just trying to look at the technical data on the product and see how it compares to similar offerings like Stabilant, Dexoit, or simple CRC contact cleaner. The MSDS of each product are interesting to compare side-by-side, as well as each product's utility for various metals in pin-to-pin applications.

Understood. Was just adding another dimension to the discussion that is almost always left out when contractors are discussing the merits of their product and using the military as the backdrop. Can you say "Slick-50?"




Sorry, Daniel. Please ignore all after "Good Day."
