Maintenance | ACF Corrosion Protection Service
ACF-50 (Anti-Corrosion Formula) is designed to protect aircraft from existing and new corrosion.
Aviation products have to meet rigorously high standards and ACF-50 not only meets these but has been awarded Aviation approvals - MIL-SPEC 81309 types II and III which means it is 'approved for ferrous and non-ferrous metals, electrical systems and electronic components'. The US Navy carried out tests using ACF-50 on the jets on their Aircraft Carriers. They found that ACF-50 so significantly reduced the corrosion they had previously experienced they now use ACF-50 all the time! It works in that type of harsh environment so imagine how well it's going to protect your aircraft.
When applied ACF-50 forms an 'Active' ultra-thin clear film that will kill any existing corrosion cells and will protect your aircraft against new corrosion forming. One application inside cowlings and wings will last up to 12 months. Other more exposed areas may need topping up more regularly. ACF-50 has the ability to 'chemically neutralise road salt' and water will bead on contact and literally bounce off. Ideal for the aircraft that are kept outside, all year round in all weathers.
ACF-50 is also a lubricant and penetrant (without loosening structural attachments). ACF-50 will ensure that moisture will not be allowed to cause any damage! Untreated moisture will creep into cracks and will not freely evaporate - ACF-50 actively ejects moisture from these areas.
