Choosing the Right Grease to Protect Your Electrical Connections


When using grease on electrical connections, should I use dielectric grease or conductive grease? Thanks, Jeff


Hi Jeff,

Good question, since the ocean salinity levels are not as high here in the Pacific NorthWest, most boaters don’t bother with a protective layer on their connections, hence we have limited experience on this. I would suggest a conductive grease, especially if it’s in between the conductive parts of the circuit. - Jeff
