Range of Uses:
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.
