ACF-50

A state-of-the-art compound for controlling corrosion on aircraft electrical and avionics systems and airframes. ACF-50 is qualified under Mil-C-81309-E, Amendment 3, Type II. ACF-50 is manufactured under ISO 9000 Certified Processes.

Two Important Facts:
1. The cost of repairing corroded aircraft is 100 times the cost of preventive maintenance.
2. A 10% reduction in maintenance expenses would increase the net profit of airlines by 40%.

About ACF-50:

  • ACF-50 was developed 15 years ago and has amassed a record of performance unique in the aerospace industry. Here are some of its unique properties:

  • ACF-50 is an excellent penetrant.

  • ACF-50 provides excellent low-shear lubrication to moving parts and cables.

  • ACF-50 kills any corrosion currently in progress with just one application.

  • Removal of the corrosion by-product is not necessary.

  • ACF-50 is good for rubber, preventing it from cracking or drying out.

  • In most applications, ACF-50's unique properties will last for 24 months before it is consumed and needs to be re-applied.

  • The ultra-thin-film does not attract and hold salt crystals and dirt particles.

  • The ultra-thin film does not "dry". It stays a flexible liquid and therefore seals the surface better as the surface expands and contracts.

  • ACF-50 will not displace or melt any grease which is already in place. It will mix with it and make it more efficient.

  • ACF-50 will not support combustion.

  • ACF-50 has a very low percentage of Volatile Organic Compounds (less than 17%).

  • ACF-50 is non-carcinogenic and virtually non-toxic. Incidentally, full toxicality testing has been done to support this claim.

  • ACF-50 can be easily removed with MEK or soap and water.

  • ACF-50 will not harm any plastics or painted surfaces.

  • ACF-50 can be safely applied to electronics such as radios, timers, test equipment, antenna connections, computers, etc. However, we recommend you avoid using it on LED's, LCD's and soft membrane switches.

  • ACF-50 can be safely applied to electrical components such as alternators, starters, magnetos, generators, distributors, carburators, wiring, switches, rheostats, compressors, battery terminals, light bulb sockets, electrical connectors, circuit breakers, ignition systems, wire harnesses, etc.

  • ACF-50 is qualified under Mil-C- 81309, Amendment 3, Type II. It also meets the performance requirements of BMS 3-23E, CSD#1, DMS 2150, and TN A 007.10138. It is also listed on the United States Coast Guard Authorized Chemical List for the HC-130 platform.

  • ACF-50 holds written OEM approvals from the following manufacturers: Bombardier Regional Aircraft, Douglas/Boeing Helicopter, ATR Regional Transport, Bell Helicopter Textron, The New Piper Aircraft, Gulfstream Aerospace, Robinson Helicopter, McDonnell Douglas, Enstrom Helicopter, Schweitzer Aircraft, British Aerospace, Concorde Battery, Raytheon Aircraft, Sikorsky Aircraft, MD Helicopters, Cessna Aircraft, Pilatus Aircraft, Beech Aircraft, Van's Aircraft, Extra Aircraft, Hiller Aircraft, Air Tractor, Lake Aircraft, Rolls-Royce, Britten-Norman Aircraft, Learjet, and Canadair.

ACF-50 actually costs less than other products since:
 

  • It lasts for 24 months.

  • Application is fast and easy with virtually no cleanup. It doesn't leave a sticky, waxy mess during application, thereby reducing cleanup time.

  • It has excellent coverage-3,000 sf when used with our fogging system.

  • Corrosion-related replacement and repair costs are cut substantially.

  • Inspections can be performed without labor-intensive removal procedures.

  • Corrosion prevention and control become more predictable, as an application can be done during regularly scheduled annual maintenance without the need for extended down time.

What is Corrosion?

1. THE CORROSION PROCESS: When moisture is present for prolonged periods of time, corrosion "cells" are formed. These cells act as miniature batteries, feeding the transfer of electrons as long as any oxygen-providing moisture is present.

2. WAXES RETAIN WATER: Most corrosion inhibitors contain sealants such as wax, tar, asphalt, teflon or silicone that lay on top of the corrosion cell. Because of their thick composition, they cannot remove the electrolyte and may actually seal it in, thereby encouraging corrosion.

How does ACF-50 Work?

3. THE ACF-50 IS FOGGED INTO THE AIRFRAME: The recommended way to apply ACF-50 is to use a specially-designed high pressure pump system to convert it into a dense fog.

4. ACF-50 PENETRATES THE CORROSION BYPRODUCT: ACF-50's ultra-thin formula easily penetrates the entire corrosion cell.

5. ACF-50 EJECTS THE ELECTROLYTE: The encapsulated and emulsified electrolyte is ejected from the corrosion cell and replaced with ACF-50.

6. NO ELECTROLYTE-NO CORROSION: The ACF-50 acts as an insulator, terminating the electrolytic process for 24 months!
