Lear Chemical Research ACF-50 Anti-Corrosion Lubricating Compound - MIL-C-81309E

Suffering from busted knuckles or other minor scrapes from the routine upkeep your plane requires? Well, how do you think your plane feels? Friction and corrosion are bad for man and machine. In fact, corrosion can be an invisible enemy who has more lives than a horde of cats. When you live in an area where everyday objects are subjected to saltwater and the undesirable effects it causes, or when your aircraft has to face continuous moisture, you need something like ACF-50 by Lear Chemical Research.

ACF-50 Anti-Corrosion Lubricating compound meets the standards of MIL-C-81309E. You know what such a Mil-Spec means? It means it has been rigorously tested and does what it sets out to do-really well. It's safe to use on metals, plastics, paints and seals. In addition, since it's clean and toxin-free, this non-greasy formula can remove corrosion and protect your aircraft for up to two years. Lear Chemical's ACF-50 works hard to penetrate joints, rivets, seams and hinges and banish dirt and grime before it harms your aircraft.

While this item is versatile in application it is also versatile in the sizes it comes in; chose from 13 ounce can to 55 gallon drum.

    Answer:Yes ACF-50 meets aerospace anti-corrosion requirements for many OEM’ s; AIRBUS, BOEING, DOUGLAS and others, see the reverse side of this document for a complete list- ing as well as additional OEM recommendations.
  3. How long has Lear Chemical been producing Thin Fluid Film anti-corrosion compounds and how long has ACF-50 been in the marketplace?
    Answer:Lear has twenty five years experience as a chemical manufacturer and ACF-50 has an excellent fourteen year track record as a product used by industry professionals who want performance they can trust.
  4. Is ACF-50 Toxic?
    Answer:No. Complete toxicology tests (oral-eye-dermal) have been performed on ACF-50 by world renowned Hazelton Laboratories. Their testing concluded that ACF-50 is Non-Toxic according to EPA and OCED standards.
  5. What does the FAA think about ACF-50?
    Answer:While the FAA is not in the habit of providing general approvals they do have at least two criteria for accepting a product. Their primary method for acceptance is for an OEM to list the product in their aircraft maintenance manual. The second method is for a product to meet a Mil-Spec. Since ACF-50 meets both of these criteria the FAA finds ACF-50 an acceptable product as a general corrosion preventative for use on aircraft (letter dated Aug. 13/96).
  6. Does ACF-50 meet US State requirements for Volatile Organic Content (VOC)?
    Answer:Yes ACF-50 is VOC compliant in all fifty states. ACF-50’ s VOC content is well below the tough air quality control regulations in California.
  7. How often does ACF-50 need to be applied to the airframe?
    Answer:We recommend a minimum of once every two years. Shorter or longer intervals will be prescribed depending on the aircraft’ s operational environment.
  8. What type of equipment do I need to apply ACF-50?
    Answer:The most economical way to treat an airframe is with our specially designed spray system. Its light weight, compact size, ergonomic design, and aircraft quality construction provides for efficient product usage and minimal labor investment. The system works on 40 psi. @, 4 to 5 CFM.
  9. Does ACF-50 loosen rivets?
    Answer:No. ACF-50’ s low shear formula will penetrate around a tight rivet removing moisture without causing it to loosen. Unlike other products ACF-50 does not contain EP (extreme pressure) additives. The presence of these undesirable additives could cause rivets to loosen and faying surfaces to loose their structural cohesiveness.
  10. Will ACF-50 harm aircraft plastics, paint, or wiring?
    Answer:ACF-50 was tested for stress crazing on acrylic plastic and for effect on aircraft grade paints with both tests showing no deleterious effects. ACF-50 was tested on polyimide insulated wire and found to have no negative effects.
