When Installing Lamps In Potentially Corrosive Outdoor Environments
LEDtronics suggests that a silicone moisture-barrier sealant be used to protect the metal-threaded base of the LED bulb.
Sealant is highly recommended for all outdoor-environment LED bulb installations to prevent water and/or moisture incursion that can lead to premature degradation of the bulb base and eventual bulb failure. This is especially recommended
for LED bulb installations near saltwater bodies
Dow Corning Molykote® 111 Compound (Valve Lubricant and Sealant) is a high-temperature, moisture-resistant, silicone grease. If liberally applied to the clean surface of the lamp socket and the base of the lamp itself, it will provide moisture and corrosion resistance.
