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.

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.
most applications, ACF-50's unique properties will last
for 24 months before it is consumed and needs to be
ultra-thin-film does not attract and hold salt crystals
and dirt particles.
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
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.
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 actually costs
less than other products since:
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.
has excellent coverage-3,000 sf when used with our
Corrosion-related replacement and repair costs are cut
Inspections can be performed without labor-intensive
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?
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
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?
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.
PENETRATES THE CORROSION BYPRODUCT: ACF-50's ultra-thin
formula easily penetrates the entire corrosion cell.
EJECTS THE ELECTROLYTE: The encapsulated and emulsified
electrolyte is ejected from the corrosion cell and replaced
ELECTROLYTE-NO CORROSION: The ACF-50 acts as an
insulator, terminating the electrolytic process for 24
