The grease / paste is applied to reduce the electrical resistance between the ground rods and the coupler (on average to 10%), and also for an additional protection of ends of rods against corrosion. The paste is also used for the pilot head to facilitate its removal after a rod was buried.
During installation, the paste is applied to the threaded parts (possesses good adhesion).
The paste is not a mandatory element. Its use is only necessary for installation of a grounding device, providing connection of lightning rods. In other cases its use is not justified.
