New Cleaner Stops Oxidation For Silver and Gold Contacts
Rawn America's new EcoClean® Silver and Gold Cleaner eliminates the number one cause of
electrical failure in hi-tech components and precious metal contacts: oxidation and dirty connections. In many instances because of microcrystalline contamination, the poor connective qualities are not
even visible to the naked eye. This misleads repair work into high cost troubleshooting and component replacement where a 30 second cleaning with less than a nickel's ($0.05) worth of chemical would fix the problem.
The new formulation goes far beyond the conventional silver and gold cleaners of the past used for
jewelry. It has been specially engineered to effectively remove oxidation and tarnish as well as grease, oils and micro-contaminants from delicate metal contacts of silver and gold commonly used in
electrical and electronic equipment.
As it cleans, the new product forms a special mono-molecular VpCI® protective film that inhibits further oxidation. The patented VpCITM technology migrates to both the immediate metal surface as well as into crevices, cracks and other porous openings in the metal to provide complete protection
during minute flexing of contacts and boards. This unique feature is especially important to miniaturized electronic components where minute flexing allows micro-crystalline attack to gain its
initial foothold in deteriorating micro-electrical circuits.
Using new chemical technology, EcoClean® Silver and Gold Cleaner is biodegradable and non toxic.
It is free of harsh abrasives and toxic chemicals to make the product friendly to workers and friendly to the environment. To use, the worker simply applies with a sponge or chamois swab, gently
cleaning the contact. When done, just wipe with a soft, dry cloth.
