Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be glad to assist you. I think you mean De-ox. It is a compound that is used on aluminum wiring connections to mitigate the oxidation on the aluminum which cause arcing and failure of the connection. As far as Knob and Tube wiring, it was never installed with aluminum conductors. If you need further input on K&T wiring, let me know.
