Water repellent
Long lasting
Easy to apply
Helps prevent formation of conductive paths


Applications where improved metal-to-metal lubricity (compared to other Dow Corning brand silicone compounds) 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
