Application

Resolution:
The use of an anti-oxidant on the load centers main lugs is not required. The lugs are UL listed for use with copper or aluminum conductors without the use of any anti-oxidation supplement. The use of an anti-oxidant is not prohibited, but assure that the brand used is a NON-PETROLEUM based product. If a petroleum based product is used, and comes in contact with the insulating base, it can degrade the insulating base material.
