Is ACF-50 approved by the US Government? A. Yes, ACF-50 is US Government performance qualified to Mil-C-81309E, Type II and Type III, Class 1&2. Q. Does ACF-50 meet any other aerospace industry standards or have any OEM approvals? A. Yes, ACF-50 meets a number of industry performance requirements, some of which are listed on the previous page, as well as having over 14 OEM recommendations. Q. What does the FAA think about ACF-50? A. ACF-50 meets FAA criteria and therefore can be an acceptable general corrosion preventative for use on aircraft. Q. Is ACF-50 Toxic? A. 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. Q. Does ACF-50 meet US State requirements for Volatile Organic Content (VOC)? A. Yes, ACF-50 is VOC compliant in all 50 states at a meager 16%. This puts us well below even the tough air quality control regulations in California. Q. How often does ACF-50 need to be applied to the airframe? A. We recommend a minimum of once every two years. Shorter or longer intervals will be prescribed depending on the aircraft's operational environment. Q. What type of equipment do I need to apply ACF-50? A. 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. Q. Does ACF-50 loosen rivets? A. 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 fraying surfaces to loose their structural cohesiveness. Q. Will ACF-50 harm aircraft plastics, paint, or wiring? A. 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. Q. How Long has Lear Chemical been producing Thin Fluid Film anti-corrosion compounds? A. Lear has over twenty years experience as a chemical manufacturer and ACF-50 has an excellent 14 year track record as a product used by industry professionals.
