Battery terminals corrosion deterrent...
Posted 30 June 2010 - 07:59 AM
Baking soda works extremely well in removing corrosion formations, but for prevention, something does not 'click'
These work very well; what are they impregnated with ? It is not dusty, it is not oily, it is not wet :
And they have lasted many years in my cars doing an excellent work.

Personally, a plain old brass wire brush and some ammonia-based window cleaner is all I use on the corroded posts of old batteries and battery clips, and they look like brand new!

I have cans of those protectors that I have had for twenty years... still good!

clean your terminals so there is no rust left upon them, then make a small sealant rign around the terminal, fill the small bowl shape with a liquid or maybe a some type of semisolid fluid, then apply sealant to the top. Basically form a cavity around the terminal and the wires that connect your car to the battery, fill the cavity with a substance that is and inhibitor to the compounds within the battery.. Just kinda thought of this.

That worked well but the grease eventually hardened and lost its seal.

Yes, grease, vaseline, wax and several commercial sprays are available, all of them by coating the metals to protect.
But those felt washers do work apparently only by 'being present' That is what draws my curiosity.
Robert mentions something I did not take in account before, the gap between the case and posts blocked by the felt as a barrier to acid leak activity. Still unsure if plain baking soda is the inhibiting agent in them.

Battery acid (wet) and dry baking soda probably does too. A liquish is needed to make bubbles.
