Ardrox Av8 is a super penetrating, water displacing, corrosion inhibiting compound (CIC). Forms a tack-free, firm film.
Range Of Use
Applied as a coating to protect metals commonly used in airframe structures and in aerospace components from corrosion.
AV 8 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.
In areas exposed to severe corrosion conditions AV 8 should be overcoated with AV 100D – a heavy duty, waxy, firm film CIC. Movable parts should be masked before treatment unless spray application can be controlled to prevent direct contact.
If AV 8 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 8 can be applied by dipping, brushing or spraying. For maximum penetration capability and the most effective corrosion inhibiting performance, spray application is recommended.
AV 8 can be sprayed using either the specifically designed ACS – System (airmix application equipment), or the AAS – System (airless
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.
