PPG Aerospace Eldorado LD-4 is a fine powder, which is applied to exterior fuel tank surfaces, to detect difficult to find leaks. The powder changes to a dark red on contact with fuel. Color change may also be used to identify other common aircrafts fluids – see table below for guidance in determining leak identity. There is no color change with water.
