The Ideal 30-031 is a Noalox Anti-Oxidant Compound. This compound is an ani-oxidant, anti-seizing compound that improves efficiency and service life of aluminum-to-aluminum and aluminum-to-copper electrical connections, as well as reduces galling and seizing and promotes good ground continuity on aluminum conduit joints. Small zinc particles that float in this compound penetrate and cut aluminum oxide, and the carrier material excludes air to prevent further oxidation. 1916, J. Walter Becker started the Ideal Commutate Dresser Company of Chicago from his mother's kitchen. He manufactured commutate dresser stones with the belief that every product should be worth more than the price paid for it. Service, he said, was part of the product. That idea has been the core IDEAL business principle for over 90 years. Today, the many loyal distributors and customers that make IDEAL successful are a testament to Becker's original philosophy.
