Sakaphen SAEKA Cleaning Paste and Silico

SAEKA Cleaning Paste and Silicone Grease

Cleaning and contamination protection

Säkaphen offer two different cleaning pastes (SAEKA Cleaning Paste 80750 for porcelain-like and other surfaces, and SAEKA Cleaning Paste​ 83750 for plastic and silicone insulators).


The main benefits provided by the SAEKA Cleaning Paste are:

  • Prevents dust and continuous water films on insulators and protects against flashovers.

  • Extends maintenance cycles and reduces downtimes.

  • Suitable for cleaning and sealing of heavily soiled, smooth and scratch resistant surfaces in one pass.

  • Simply apply with a cloth and polish.

  • In areas with high humidity or air pollution, additional protection with SAEKA silicone grease is recommended.

SAEKA Silicone Grease 81750 is used for enhanced sealing in highly contaminated areas. It prevents the formation of continuous water film on insulators in areas with high humidity and protects against flashovers and destruction. When the air is contaminated with flue-ash or salts the additional protection of surfaces with SAEKA Silicone Grease is essential.

All of the above SAEKA products have the additional benefits:

  • 3 in 1 function: cleaning, sealing, protecting.

  • Easy to apply: no special equipment needed. Clothes / rags are enough. No special training is required.

  • Fast application: No drying time, no pre-treatment.

  • Physically harmless: There is no special protection needed.

  • No Environmental Pollution: The products do not contain any harmful ingredients such as solvents, detergents, etc.

  • No atmospheric pollution: No emission during or after application.
