De-ox-id vs. De-ox-it?

Post by Richard Steinfel » Wed, 18 Dec 2002 17:24:22



I have a bottle of an old product from GC (I believe) called "De-ox-id."  It
had been recommended to me many years ago by a person who I considered my
stereo repair guru.

Now y'all are praising a Caig product called "De-ox-it." Is this the same
item under a new brand name?

I got me a hi IQ an a coupla degrees, I jus caint figur this out for
misself. They ain't gonna let me inna Mensa nohow. Whateva will ah do?

It's close, but it's not it.

Not at all. Different manufacturer. The original manufacturer actually.

I have a spray can of De-Ox-Id made by GC Electronics that I purchased at a
local electronics store in the past year.
It seems to work OK, but I've never used De-Ox-It.

Both DeoxIT and De-Ox-Id are currently listed as Caig products in the AES
on-line catalog at www.tubesandmore.com website.  Click on the Caig logo on
the home page.

The older can of DE-OX-ID aerosol on my desk right now is from GC
Electronics, Rockford, Illinois.

At the Caig website, you can usually find the application data for their
chemicals.  www.caig.com

Thats interesting because it looks like an error on AES' part.  I see
nothing about the DeoxID product that ties it to Caig and it is
mentioned as an oil based clean/protector and wears a GC label - not at
all the same as Deoxit.
Does your can mention Caig, Jim?

Just curious - is it even the same colour (red) and odour (hard to
describe) as Caig's DeOxit?

Cheers,
Fred

Bill---You may be right about AES mis-identifying the GC product as Caig.  I
went to the Caig site, and didn't find the DE-OX-ID listed there.  It is
listed at the GC Electronics site.

The can I have is labelled GC, it is an aerosol, 5 ounce, part # 10-1906.
UPC-10151-12410

I have had this can probably at least 10 years.  The label is white with
black printing, and red trim.

Ingredients listed are:  Perchloroethylene (127-18-4)
                                  Kerosene (8008-20-6)
                                  Refined Mineral Oils (64742-55-8)

The spray itself comes out clear (no color).

But -my- De-Ox-Id from GC is not an aerosol dispenser. It is a bottle for
application with a toothpick.

I have another interesting bottle of No-Ox from WalsCo. Pretty old.

The original popular chemical was Cramolin. Caig started marketing a new
product called DeoxIt dilluted or (R-100 full strength), not to be confused
with Cramolin , still in production in Germany. On of my new favorites is
Bullfrog contact cleaner. Really good stuff. Of course Stabilant22 is hard to
beat.

I just sprayed my finger with new can of De-Ox-Id, dries much faster than
WD-40. Similar to DeoxIT in drying.

Has anyone dealt with or used a product called Cailube.  It's a sort
of protecting grease for moving contacts.  I presume it's made by
Caig?  Is this stuff any good?

Yes - excellent for controls (as opposed to DeOxit - which is for
contacts, etc.).  Actually, there's two Cailube MCLs (Moving Contact
Lube); the "lube" is fairly thin -- and the "grease" - which is thicker
- and is better for slide controls, etc.
