Stabilant : Computer Hardware Buyers’ Glossary
The Stabilant website was down for
quit a while, but now it is back up. Stabilant-22 is a contact treatment. It does not
clean contacts. It is a liquid semiconductor that fills in poor mechanical contacts.
I use it primarily on PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) card contacts and
internal cable contacts. It cleans up all manner of intermittent problems. It is not
as important now that contact quality generally has improved. It is sticky, so not
suitable for contacts you repeatedly take apart and reconnect. There is a
watered-down version of it sold in the USA called Tweak.
