Includes "Recommended Component" DeoxIT Gold - Stereophile
The Easy Way to Upgrade A/V Performance
The Audio/Video Survival Kit from Caig Laboratories contains everything you need to thoroughly clean and enhance the performance of AV components. It offers maximum performance and protection for connectors, contacts, and controls, which need to be kept in top shape, or sound and picture quality can suffer degradation. All of this protection is yours at a special package price.
DeoxIT D5 Contact Cleaner
For conditioning electronic connections both inside and out, the Survival Kit includes a 14g mini-spray can of DeoxIT D5. This superior cleaner, enhancer and lubricant for metal electrical connections has both a cleaning and flushing action with a thorough precision cleaning power.
DeoxIT Gold Conditioning Solution
Also onboard is the famous DeoxIT Gold, a unique conditioning solution that improves conductivity and provides long-lasting protection on gold, base metals and other precious metal contacts and connections (gold, silver, rhodium, copper, bronze, nickel, etc.). Use it on plated connectors, contacts, and metal surfaces for maximum performance and protection.
DeoxIT Gold is recommended for critical applications where only slight cleaning action is necessary. If the surface looks clean, applying DeoxIT contact cleaner first is usually not necessary. DeoxIT Gold is designed to dissolve small amounts of oxidation. The more critical the connection or part, especially low current applications, DeoxIT Gold should be the final step.
DeoxIT Fader Lube
DeoxIT Fader Lube is a precision lubricant specifically formulated to improve conductivity and lubricate conductive plastic and carbon compound faders, switches, and other similar components. Over time these components lose their original lubrication from wear and/or repeated cleaning. Dust, dirt, drink spills and other contamination also degrade the components' lubricant. The need for re-lubrication is necessary to avoid excess wear and abrasion to the plastic surfaces.
Another use for DeoxIT FaderLube is on conductive membrane switches and components. Oil, grease and acids build up on the membrane surfaces due to repeated finger contact and can lead to device malfunction. Applying DeoxIT FaderLube will provide a long-lasting barrier against these types of contamination. The oil, grease and acids will be displaced above the DeoxIT FaderLube layer preventing contact with the plastic membrane.
DeoxIT Wipes and DeoxIT Gold Wipes
For quick and easy touch-up cleaning, try DeoxIT Wipes and DeoxIT Gold Wipes. These no-mess wipe-on/wipe-off cleaning/treatment pads are the easiest way to clean and treat male RCAs and headphone jacks. Gold wipes "make connection maintenance, if not a snap, then less of a frustration. You'll feel like a pro!" says Jon Marks in the December 2002 issue of Stereophile.
Keep controls in top condition with CaiLube. The 5.0-oz spray can replenishes and lubricates switches, potentiometers, faders, and other sliding surfaces. The new three-position adjustable spray valve puts just the amount of lubricant exactly where you need it.
Even More Application Options
For tight spaces, use the 'needle dispenser' version of DeoxIT, the handy squeeze tube of DeoxIT Gold, and DeoxIT FaderLube in a squeeze tube The included lint-free swabs, brushes, and cloths add to the application options.
