Applying a dielectric synthetic connector grease to electrical connectors gives numerous advantages. Connector grease guards against oxidation, fretting corrosion, contact wear and extends connector functional life. The application of a connector grease can ensure equipment reliability and prevent expensive device warranty costs.
A thin film of lubricant can also reduce electrical mating force by as much as 80 percent. For electronic connectors with dozens or even hundreds of pins or for automotive connectors that are in hard-to-reach places, a low insertion force makes assembly more efficient and ensures solid connections.
