PolyGone 300-AG
Aviation Grade Polysulfide Emulsifier / Stripper

DESCRIPTION:  PolyGone 300-AG is a high performance Aviation Grade sealant emulsifier designed to remove polysulfide and other sealants from a variety of surfaces.  PolyGone 300-AG meets the requirements of Boeing D6-17487, except for ASTM 502 Paint Softening and meets Douglas’ CSD#1, except ASTM 484, Acrylic Crazing.

 

CHEMISTRY:  PolyGone 300-AG is a proprietary formulation designed to penetrate, break down, and emulsify tenacious sealants.  Once broken down, the sealant is suspended to prevent redeposition and enable easy rinsing.

 

APPLICATION: PolyGone 300-AG is intended for use at room temperature (68°F-80°F).  It may be continuously sprayed or used in immersion-based cleaning systems.  Heat (120ºF/49ºC) and/or gentle agitation, including ultrasonic, is not necessary but significantly enhances performance.  The agitation removes the digested sealant and exposes underlying layers to fresh PolyGone 300-AG.  However, do not use a sparging system, as this will quickly deactivate the emulsifier.  PolyGone 300-AG must be used at full strength.  Dilution and/or excessive heat, above 120ºF will deteriorate the emulsifier.  RPM Technology recommends using PolyGone 300-AG in a well-ventilated area and in a covered cleaning apparatus to prevent product evaporation.

 

RINSE: PolyGone 300-AG is water-soluble.  Although water may be used to rinse the product, rinsing with a low surfactanated emulsifier such as eOx®, also available from RPM Technology, followed by pure water will improve removal of all residues.  An emulsifier will improve rinsing via a “sheeting” effect, reduce sealant redeposition, and reduce water usage.  In cases where water is not preferred, a compatible solvent such as IPA or acetone may be used.

 

COMPATIBILITY:  PolyGone 300-AG is metal-friendly.  The formulation is non-ionic and non-reactive.  Metals such as Cu, Fe, Al, Zn, and Ti have been tested with PolyGone 300-AG with no detected metal loss.  However, PolyGone 300-AG attacks many types of polymers and plastics.  Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyvinyl alcohol, and similar plastics should not be treated with PolyGone 300-AG.  Many elastomers are also not recommended.  RPM Technology recommends the following plastics for application and storage, Polypropylene, Poly Olefin, Polyethylene (low and high density), Teflon, and Butyl Rubber.  Testing is necessary to demonstrate full compatibility.

 

PPE: Recommend personal protective equipment (PPE) includes safety glasses/goggles and nitryl or butyl rubber gloves.  Aprons may be used to protect clothing.  Do not use gloves made from latex or vinyl.

 

TOXICITY: PolyGone 300-AG contains a blend of polar organics.  PolyGone 300-AG has a low inherent toxicity and at diluted levels, is essentially non-toxic to aquatic life.  The material is readily biodegradable and does not bioaccumulate.

 

STORAGE: PolyGone 300-AG must be stored in a cool and dry environment away from light and incompatible materials.  The recommended storage temperature is between 50ºF-80ºF (10ºC-27ºC).  Under these conditions, unopened containers of PolyGone 300-AG have a 1-year shelf life.

 

DISPOSAL:  PolyGone contains no halogenated, reactive, or other EPA regulated components.  Conformance with Federal, State, and Local disposal regulations is required.  Diluted PolyGone can be disposed of by discharge to a sewage treatment plant with prior approval.  Used PolyGone may need to be disposed of as organic solvent waste depending on the sealants and contaminates removed.  PolyGone has a high BTU value and waste can be managed through a fuels-blending program.

 

AVAILABILITY: PolyGone 300-AG is available in individual poly gallons, 4x1 gallon cases, and 55-gallon steel drums.
