How To Use Dielectric Grease?

Is dielectric grease a conductor?

Dielectric grease, or tune-up grease, is a silicone-based grease that repels moisture and protects electrical connections against corrosion.

The grease does not conduct electricity, so it shouldn’t be applied directly to the mating surfaces (pins and sockets) of an electrical connection.

Can Vaseline be used as dielectric grease?

Dielectric grease is not an electric conductor while anything soaked in petroleum jelly will burn if exposed to heat or an electric current. Also, Vaseline has a very low melting point compared to the dielectric grease which can withstand extreme temperatures.

Should I use dielectric grease on battery terminals?

Dielectric grease is an electrical insulator. It’s OK on the surface of the connected terminal. But if the battery is properly sealed you really don’t need anything.

Does dielectric grease increase conductivity?

Dielectric grease, or tune-up grease, is a silicone-based grease that repels moisture and protects electrical connections against corrosion. The grease does not conduct electricity, so it shouldn’t be applied directly to the mating surfaces (pins and sockets) of an electrical connection.

How do you clean dielectric grease?

Normally this is not an issue, but in this case dirt and grime has got into the grease and the whole thing needs to be cleaned out, scrubbed and sprayed with contact cleaner and put back with more reasonable amounts of dielectric grease. I typically clean grease with either a lye or non-lye based water degreaser.
