Re: One more whack on the dead horse!


Indeed, CRC 2-26 is NOT a conductor, See these specifications:
Note in particular it has a "Dielectric Strength"
  • Provides precision lubrication by its thin, high dielectric strength, lubricating film
Dielectrics are insulators.

Apparently what it does is removes and prevents corrosion which is a non or poor conductor. And apparently when a wheel touches a rail the film itself must get displaced by the wheel and allows then good contact between un-corroded metals,.

Neat stuff.
