Electrical Contact Cleaner Alternative

Electrical Contact Cleaner Alternative

Electric contacts are present in almost all the machines we use, whether industrially or in daily life. From the alarm clocks that wake us up to the cars, buses, or trains that take us where we need to be, we often depend on electronic parts working properly. However, these parts are often delicate and can easily become clogged with dirt or other contaminants. Electrical contact cleaners are fast-dissolving aerosols that can easily remove these problematic layers and keep your equipment working efficiently. Unfortunately, many of the historical cleaners used, such as AK-225, have been banned because of their harmful effects on people and the environment. That is why finding the best electrical contact cleaner alternative is so important.

Negative Aspects of Traditional Compared to Electrical Contact Cleaner

Electrical contact cleaners are typically aerosol solutions used to clean metal electrical parts that are susceptible to corrosion or contamination. Because they are used to clean off difficult-to-remove substances, the chemicals used are often toxic for human consumption. Traditionally, chemicals such as Trichloroethylene, Perchloroethylene, and N-Propyl Bromide have been included in contact cleaners and can cause health problems for workers. When repeatedly exposed, these issues include:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Fainting
  • Cancer
  • Reproductive issues

For that reason, it is important that cleaners do not include these toxic chemicals. To make sure that the solvent you are using is safe, check for GHS pictograms (red diamonds with black symbols inside).

Additionally, many aerosols have historically included ozone depleting chemicals such as hydrochlorofluorocarbons and chlorofluorocarbons. While many of these chemicals have been regulated out of current production, it is important to check the environmental safety of products.
