These are the specific fluids used by major drive unit manufacturers.
Using the cheap, commonly available science project type ferrofluid results in an overdamped output and can soften drive unit adhesive - always double check the origin.
Ferrofluid is a cooling / damping compound used in the magnetic gap of many tweeters to increase power handling and smooth out the frequency response; it has a tendency to thicken with age, gradually reducing tweeter output to zero. Many old tweeters from the 1980s/90s can be restored to perfect working order by carefully dismantling and cleaning out the old coagulated fluid then replacing with fresh.
This refill kit comprises a high accuracy syringe pre-filled with Ferrofluid specifically formulated for high fidelity tweeter application. There is sufficient in the syringe for 2 tweeters & a micro applicator nozzle is supplied.
