Range of Uses:
Give your aircraft the protection it needs against corrosion and common types of damage by using Chemetall Ardrox AV 15 Corrosion Inhibiting Compound from SkyGeek. What do you suppose corrosion inhibiting compound does? That's right - it inhibits corrosion! At SkyGeek, we like when our products are well-named. However, we'll still mention a few things about Chemetall Ardrox AV 15 corrosion inhibiting compound so you can get a better idea of how this innovative formula can work for you. Chemetall Ardrox AV 15 effectively protects common aerospace metals and metal alloys from corrosion. The tack-free firm film is extremely heavy-duty and is good at penetrating inaccessible areas and displacing water, even under less than ideal conditions. The corrosion inhibitor is sold in a convenient aerosol can for fast application and an even coating across the surface. Ardrox AV 15 can be used as a coating on all parts of the airframe, and it provides excellent corrosion protection with low film weight. Ardrox AV 15 can safely be used on painted and unpainted surfaces without damaging the finish.
Need to apply the product to a small area? ARDROX® AV 15 is so versatile that it can be sprayed on or brushed on depending on your specific needs, though we recommend spraying whenever possible. The spray-on corrosion inhibitor is priced low and bulk pricing is available on qualifying orders. In a hurry? Have your order shipped the same-day for a small fee.
- Can be applied by spraying, brushing or dipping
- Spray recommended for maximum penetration and most effective corrosion inhibiting
- Can be sprayed with specially designed ACS-System (airmix application) or AAS-System (airless application)
Important: Mask movable parts before treatment. If spray control or masking isn't possible, consider using AV 25 instead, an alternative soft waxy film CIC.
If you're looking for Ardrox AV 30 corrosion inhibiting compound, we have that as well.
Applied as a coating to protect metals commonly used in airframe structures and in aerospace components from corrosion.
AV 15 can be used in all areas of the airframe on painted and unpainted surfaces. It combines good penetration properties with excellent corrosion inhibiting characteristics and a low applied film weight.
The viscosity of AV 15 is optimised to ensure an effective protective coating and to promote penetration into otherwise inaccessible areas of the airframe.
Movable parts should be masked before treatment unless spray application can be controlled to prevent direct contact. If AV 15 spray control or masking of movable components is not possible, then an alternative, soft waxy film CIC, such as AV 25 should be used.
AV 15 can be applied by dipping, brushing or spraying. For maximum penetration capability and the most effective corrosion inhibiting performance, spray application is recommended.
AV 15 can be sprayed using either the specifically designed ACS - System (airmix application equipment), or the AAS - System (airless application equipment).
Operating instructions and recommendations for using spray equipment are given in the Technical Manual "Aircraft Corrosion Protection and Control" available from the local Chemetall Sales Office.
