DeoxIT™ DP5 is perfect to clean surface oxides from mains plugs; interconnect and speaker cable connectors; and moving parts such as volume controls. You only need to use a very small amount, so this quantity will keep your system in tip-top condition for years.
DeoxIT DP5 also features a higher concentrate of the DeoxIT chemical that actually does the work. Normally only 5%, DP5 is 25% pure.
How does it work?
Deoxit dissolves oxides and sulphides that form on metal contact surfaces removing those sources of resistance. This restores the contact's integrity and leaves a thin (organic) layer that coats and protects the metal. Special additives prevent the dissolved oxides from reattacking keeping them in suspension and allowing them to be easily dispersed by the mechanical action of the contact.
DeoxIT DP5 is suitable for worldwide shipping and through the normal post. A number of online retailers are selling the cheaper D5. This is a pressurized aerosol can and illegal to send through the post.
I went through my entire system using this product, and I found it to be excellent. After cleaning, you get a strong sense that all your cables, sockets, filters etc, are working to their optimum. My Hi-Fi sounded far more detailed and authentic. Recommended.

"Does Exactly What It Says On The Tin..."
The Deoxit I purchased over the last couple of days is an excellent product. It has released the tuning knob spindle in a Yaesu FRG 100 which had totally siezed, so tight in fact that I couldn't even shift it with pliers!
Effectively, the radio was useless.
After reading a radio forum and learning that this was a common fault on these now-discontinued sets I ordered a can from yourselved (in fact Amazon had sold out) and reading how good it apparently was I oiledthe spindle with this stuff, letting it soak into the encoder in the radio overnight and unbelievably it released it this morning after a bit of jiggling about with the pliers. In fact the tuning is better than it was before. Although I am aware that this isn't DeOxit's prime purpose, I am immensely pleased that I don't now have to scrap the radio and will not now go back to ordinary switch cleaner.
