Will It Short Out Between Adjacent Contacts?
No! In one test,
a computer mother-board ran perfectly while partially immersed in undiluted Stabilant 22!
Note that the Stabilant 22 Concentrate form was used for this test. When Stabilant 22A or Stabilant 22E is used in the real world,
be sure to allow for the evaporation of the alcohol
which forms 4/5th's of the volume and allows for easy application.
Is Stabilant Just Another Contact Cleaner?
Definitely not!!! [In
fact R.A.L. recommends that contacts should
be thoroughly cleaned before application to get the best results].
While Stabilant 22 does have a detergent action it is not
sold as a cleaner, just as it has a good lubricant action but
is not sold as a lubricant.
Is Stabilant Right For My Application?
They are being used to solve, as well as prevent problems
in such diverse fields as
Pro Audio Recording,
home stereo systems,
robotics, pulp and paper mills, oil fields, mining and railway operations as well as
marine electrical & electronics and
applications. Check out the Application Notes provided on the right side bar and if you still have any questions,

How Much Should Be Used?
Very little. Normally,
a film thickness of about 0.5 to 1 mils
of the concentrate is more than enough. You only need enough to fill up
the minute gaps within the contacts. Stabilant 22 is an electrically
active material which stays resident within a contact pair, thereby enhancing
conductivity without causing electrical leakage between adjacent contacts.
Thus large quantities of the material do not have to be "hosed on" as is
the case with cleaners.
Is It Hazardous?
No, it has very low external toxicity (but we don't recommend drinking it), no
skin reactions have ever been observed and the undiluted form
22 is of low flammability. Stabilants are not
subject to the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) and they are
not reportable under SARA Title III.
