"Alu-Plus" Contact PasteUse WAGO's "Alu-Plus" when connecting any solid aluminum conductors with a WAGO spring clamp.
The nominal current will need to be lowered allowing for restrictions set on an aluminum conductor:
2,5 mm² = 16 A
4 mm² = 22 A
Contents: 20 ml "Alu-Plus" contact paste
Packaging: 20 units (4 x 5)
WAGO "Alu-Plus" contact paste should be used for a safe connection between solid aluminum conductors (up to 4 mm² ) and WAGO spring clamp. Cleaning or greasing the aluminum conductor is not needed, since WAGO's "Alu-Plus" is injected directly into the conductor openings of the terminal block.
If there is a noticable discoloring due to corrosion, a mechanical cleaning is necessary!
Afterwards, the cleaned solid aluminum conductor is simply connected (in multiple conductor terminal blocks, these can be mixed with copper wires).
- automatically destroys the oxide film upon clamping,
- inhibits any new oxidation at point of contact,
- prevents electrolytic corrosion between the aluminum and copper wires (within the same terminal block),
- offers a long term solution for corrosion protection.
WAGO "Alu-Plus" can also be applied on the aluminum conductor itself before connection.
