What is ACF- 50?
ACF-50, Anti-Corrosion Formula, is a state of
the art, anti-corrosion/lubricant compound, that has been specifically
designed for the Aero Space Industry.
Itcan 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 12 months, gradually
disappearing as it is chemically consumed.
ACF-50 is designed with the professional aerospace technician in mind.
ACF-50 should be used within the guidelines established by the OEM or
governing agency for the prevention, control, or repair of corrosion.
ACF-50's active Thin Fluid Film chemistry penetrates corrosion deposits
where it chemically emulsifies and displaces the electrolyte. This isolation
process keeps the corrosion cell deactivated.
On new metal ACF-50 forms a self-healing barrier that prevents corrosion
from starting. ACF-50 remains physically and chemically effective for
up to two years.
It is important to emphasize that ACF-50 is also an excellent lubricant
but does NOT contain any wax, resin, silicon or Teflon... compounds that
can gum up mechanisms, block drain holes, or trap moisture to cause corrosion.
Although ACF-50 is used primarily in the aviation industry it can be
used virtually anywhere that corrosion is a problem. Applications such
as interior metal surfaces, structural assemblies, micro switches, avionic
components, solenoids/motors, battery terminals etc. See the industry
sector links on the right for more information.
