EA DC 5 Compound

DESCRIPTION
EA 5 Compound is a grease- like material containing an inert amor- phous silica filler in combination with selected dimethyl and phenylmethyl silicone fluids. This nonconductive compound is used primarily for applications requiring compatibility with rubber, metal, and plastic.
Specific features include:
• Easy application by hand, wiping, brushing, or automated equipment
• Room-temperature consistency over a wide range of hot and cold temperatures
• Serviceable temperature range of -54 to 232°C (-65 to 450°F) – a significant improvement over other silicone compounds
• Resistance to oxidation, moisture, and salt spray
• Virtually inert and nonvolatile APPLICATIONS
• Applications where improved metal-to-metal lubricity is needed.
• To help prevent arcing and flashovers on insulators and bushings
• As a contact lubricant on high-voltage equipment
• To lubricate static and dynamic O-ring seals in hot-melt adhesive equipment
• To help prevent rust and corrosion on insulator threads and bolts; also helps in
removal of insulators and hardware for replacement
• As a water-repellent filling material to help prevent moisture from traveling
inside the rubber jacket of service entrance cable (can be injected using a
grease gun with a needle-type nozzle)
• To help prevent oxidation and corrosion on contacts and band-tightening
screws of socket-type watt-hour meters
