Default Battery termanal coating

What's the best product to stop the fuzz from growing on batt terms and cable ends ? I just got done cleaning battery's and installing new cables and want to stop the fuzz growth. Thanks

I have used this product for years.
NO -OX-ID grease.
Amazon
$11.59.

Once applied on clean surfaces there is no more corrosion.

All best wishes
Cheers

I like this stuff. Recommended by Shane Fideli some time back. I have used it for years and never an issue on any electrical connections. Probably the same that Tim suggested, just a different brand. Tim and Shane know their stuff.

Hey Mark! Nice to hear from you....Fuzz growth = Battery gassing. Usually caused by old batteries or an "inexpensive" charger. When you apply the Kopr-Sheild, apply like you would hand lotion, not paint. A thin coating is all that is required to both enhance connectivity and stop the O2 from reaching the copper lugs.

BTW, that old folding table that you left at Hershey 8 years ago is still holding up! We used it for a BBQ Prep table at Pine Mtn this year. Let me know if you ever need it back LOL... it only has about 86,000 miles on it.

I use Corrosion-X. It's good for all electrical connections, and it creeps into the crevices.

I agree. Good stuff. For the record though it's ACF-50.
