PolyGone™ 300-AG is
a high performance Aviation Grade sealant emulsifier designed to remove
polysulfide and other sealants from a variety of surfaces.
300-AG meets the requirements of Boeing D6-17487, except for ASTM 502
Paint Softening and meets Douglas’ CSD#1, except ASTM 484, Acrylic
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.
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.
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.
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,
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
Recommend personal protective equipment (PPE) includes safety
glasses/goggles and nitryl or butyl rubber gloves. Aprons may be used

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