Would dielectric grease be similar to Cramolin , it is used on electronic ignition systems on automobiles? I have used it on electrical connections subject to water and salt trying to prevent corrosion.

Hey, wait a second............so Deoxit is actually what you're after? It should be available at any electrical supply or big box store for coating spliced wire. It was really popular when the shortcomings of aluminum wire were discovered.

Similar, yes. But couldn't attest to it's effectivness like I'm able to with Cramolin. Myself I would probably just use a drop of R-5 Deoxid (Cramolin). The way it works is that it is specifically formulated not to stick to itself very well. It has 1 x 10^12 Ohms/cm resistance, but under contact pressure it reduces to a monomolecular thickness, making that resistance virtually nonexistent. In the meantime it protects contacts from oxidizing. MARVELOUS stuff! I've been using it since it was recomended to me by the John Fluke company back in the early eighties for contact treatment on one of their AC voltage calibrators. I bought an engineering kit then which also included a tin of their heavier grease. The R-5 (Red) is the ONLY thing I've ever seen that would clean up a position potentiometer on an analog oscilloscope. I last used it on all the slide pots and contacts on my Nakamici 1000 tape deck. Nothing better that I know of.

I think you fellas are sorting this out, I have used this Deoxid paste on electrical connections before and it seems to work well in preventing oxidation of aluminum connections. It should also help in vintage wiring as well.
