Long Lasting Protection For Plated Connections
DeoxIt Gold is a unique conditioning solution that improves conductivity and protects gold, base metals and other precious metal contacts and connections. DeoxIT Gold provides long lasting protection on plated connectors, contacts and metal surfaces for maximum performance and protection.
DeoxIt Gold deoxidizes and removes surface contamination, penetrates plated surfaces and molecularly bonds to the base metals. These are unique properties; no other product does this. DeoxIt Gold increases both performance and reliability of all electrical equipment. Pro Gold creates greater definition and dynamics, reduces noise and lowers distortion. DeoxIt Gold also stabilizes connections between dissimilar metals. DeoxIt Gold provides long lasting protection (1-10 years) on gold, silver, rhodium, copper, nickel and other precious metals.
DeoxIt Gold coats the entire contact surface, providing superior protection from abrasion (insertion resistance), dendrite corrosion, arcing, RFI, wear, and atmospheric contamination. DeoxIt Gold will significantly increase the performance and reliability of all electrical components and equipment.
Physical and chemical changes in the surface condition of electrical or electronic connectors are primary causes of degraded performance of components and equipment. When contact surfaces are exposed to dust, smoke, gases, soot, and other solids suspended in the atmosphere, nonmetallic films form, inhibiting conductivity. Added resistance and friction between metal surfaces can also cause abrasion, noise, freeze-up, and in some cases, increased power consumption.
A common problem with plated surfaces, especially gold, is the "whiskering" (dendrite corrosion) of base metals to the surface due to gold’s soft and porous nature. Once exposed, base metals oxidize causing a "blistering" of the surfaces, adding unwanted resistance that impedes electrical performance. The contact surfaces are actually separated by this blister, thereby reducing the effective contact area. Since gold plated surfaces are thinly coated, they are susceptible to scratching and abrasion, further exposing the base metals.
Conduction through a DeoxIt Gold coated surface takes place in three ways. First, DeoxIt Gold can be displaced by electrical arcing, shock wave or simple mechanical pressure and will redistribute itself along the surface when the disturbance is removed. Second, a thin insulating film of DeoxIt Gold can be dispersed by an electrical field. Finally, conduction takes place through a very thin film of DeoxIt Gold by means of a quantum-mechanical phenomenon called "tunneling." To avoid detouring into a discussion in physics, simply stated, electrons travel from one side of a thin film of DeoxIt Gold to the other without passing through. (This is the same effect that gave the tunnel diode its name). DeoxIt Gold fills the gaps in the contact surfaces, increasing the surface area and current flow (conductivity). DeoxIt Gold penetrates the plated surface and molecularly bonds to the base metals to seal and protect it. Unlike other products, DeoxIt Gold provides long lasting protection (1-10+ years) and will not gum-up, evaporate, varnish, char or breakdown.
Nonabrasive, non-corrosive, nonflammable, nontoxic and environmentally safer; DeoxIt Gold is the right choice for your system!
