Zip-Chem® Calla® 500 Exterior Aircraft Cleaner

When dealing with cleaners for your aircraft there are two questions to consider: Will it work and is it safe? Zip Chem's Calla 500 answers in the affirmative on both accounts. Calla 500 is a highly concentrated and versatile alkaline water-base cleaner primarily used for general aircraft as well as for removing exhaust stains. In regards to safety, this cleaner meets the requirements stated in specification MIL-C-25769G. When tests are conducted in accordance with this specification, Calla 500 is approved for use on aluminum alloys, magnesium alloys and cadmium plated steel. Like many of its Calla counterparts, Calla 500 comes in one gallon, five gallon, or 55 gallon (drum) containers. *NOTE: Special packaging, such as 330 gallon totes, is available upon request. This cleaner has two versions: domestic and overseas.

Calla 500 offers users a multitude of benefits and features:

  • Does not cause crazing or cracking of acrylic base plastics under stress
  • Formulated with biodegradable detergents
  • Contains no harmful concentrations of phenols, chromates or chlorinated solvents
  • Also recommended for use on all aviation related ground service equipment
  • Conforms to specifications: Mil-C-25769G, AMS-1526-B, D6-17487, and CSD-1
  • Application

    The following recommendations for the cleaning of aircraft, aircraft components and facilities have been compiled through many years of cleaning many types of aircraft under widely varied conditions.

    General Cleaning With Water Solution: Mix one part Calla 500 with 30 parts water. Apply by spray or mop and allow a few minutes to penetrate. Then agitate with brush or mop and rinse with water.

    General Cleaning With Foam: Mix one part Calla 500 with 30 parts water. Apply through a foam generator. Then agitate the foam on the surface with brush or mop and rinse with water.

    Heavy Duty Cleaning (Water Mix): Mix one part Calla 500 with five parts water and use above procedure.

    Heavy Duty Cleaning (Solvent Mix): Mix one part Calla 500 with one part water and seven parts petroleum solvent and agitate with air to form a thick creamy emulsion. Apply the emulsion with spray or mop and allow a few minutes for penetration. Then agitate with brush or mop and rinse with water.

    For extremely dirty areas, a mixture of one part Calla 500 with four parts solvent may be used. The viscosity of the emulsion may be adjusted by adding more solvent to thicken or more Calla 500 to thin. Any emulsion left from previous day's use would be agitated before using.
