Dow Corning® 5 Compound is silicone-based silicone, a dielectric compound used on insulators and bushings; as a lubricant for high-current switches. Nonconductive; water repellent; helps prevent formation of conductive paths; long lasting; translucent light-gray, heavy-consistency, grease-like silicone paste.
Applications: Protecting transmission insulators, distribution line insulators, power substation bushings, pole top disconnect switches, insulator threads and bolts, service entrance cable, meters.
