No Aluminum Oxidation!

I've assembled Mosley (and other) antennas using the Noalox and Penetrox for years (since 1963).  They disassemble and reassemble easily, even after many years in the air!  I believe the stuff is basically powdered aluminum in a petroleum jelly base.  And yes, it is a pain to get it off your fingers, hands, and clothes!

DX Engineering sells a similar product that seems to substitute powdered copper for the powdered aluminum.  That will also do the job.

"NOALOX" - No Aluminum Oxide


Originally designed for Al-Cu (aluminum-copper) electrical outlets, etc., that were used with aluminum electrical wire & copper-plated electrical outlets & wall switches (etc.) to prevent oxide-created issues.

It's NOALOX, right?
That one is on Amazon.

Meanwhile I searched for it. Did not know this product before.
Is based on petroleum oil,
added some organic oil with hardener I suppose
(Like some ordinary laque) or is it rather like a grease?
and contains fine zinc powder they say.

Very interesting thing. Normally zinc and copper eat each other
electrolytically, but the laque encapsulates the contact points.
I wonder ablout that.

I will order one and try it out,
thank you for the information.
