Default Transrotary Input Selector anti oxidation Yamaha AX, Pioneer A series type

Hello!

I have seen a documentary once upon a time, on Discovery Channel that stated that folding cardboard around a prone to oxidation object reduces oxidation effect upon the object in cause!
Is that true? I have opened my Yamaha AX-1070 and placed a tailored small cardboard box on the transrotor input selector housing!
Is this thing true, that cardboard keeps oxidation away from the contacts of the input selector?
It is a temporary solution until I am getting the SRBA GOLD edition of the input selector!

Thank you!

It may be that the cardboard absorbs moisture in the area close to the parts.

Just a guess.

I'll say the same, cellulose does that in a great manner! Maybe some other chemical vapors too that form due to the phenomenon!

Cardboard is VERY acidic. It will CAUSE oxidation. Bad bad bad.

Far better to use a squirt of Deoxit, Cramoline or good old Bosch ignition dilectric grease.
