Even if you just fly your airplane on nice, warm days, humid air at ground level permeates every nook and cranny of your airplane. As you climb and the air cools, this moist air is trapped and moisture condenses all over the insides of your aircraft structure. This, in turn, provides the catalyst for corrosion to begin.
Corrosion is a natural phenomenon which destroys most metals by either a chemical or electrochemical reaction. The rate at which metals corrode depends greatly on the environment they are exposed to, and the amount of preventive maintenance they receive. Metals that are exposed to marine atmospheres, moisture, tropical temperatures, and industrial chemical atmospheres have the highest rate of corrosion. The tendency of metals to corrode creates a serious problem in the area of aircraft operation.
ACF-50, Anti-Corrosion Formula, is a state of the art, anti-corrosion/lubricant compound, that has been specifically designed for the Aerospace Industry.
ACF-50 can be described as an ultra thin fluid film compound which must be applied on an annual basis. ACF-50 actively penetrates through the corrosion deposits to the base of the cell where it emulsifies and encapsulates the electrolyte, lifting it away from the metal surface.
ACF-50 then dispels this moisture and provides an atmospheric barrier which prevents any further moisture contact, thereby keeping the cell inactive. This compound continues to actively penetrate and "creep" into the tightest of seams, lap joints, micro cracks and around rivet heads, dissipating the moisture, even salt water, in these corrosion prone areas.
These unique abilities of ACF-50 remain effective for 24 months, gradually disappearing as it is chemically consumed.
We are an offical ACF50 Treatment Applicator/Centre and can offer complete and partial treatments of aircraft and equipment. We have the complete range of equipment and products to able full anti corrosion treatment. Please call or e-mail for details.
