eOx Aircraft Cleaner

eOx® Aircraft Cleaner – Made In The USA

Description

eOx Aircraft Cleaner (AC) is a specialty product for the aviation industry. eOx AC is suitable for external and internal cleaning of virtually all metal and/or painted surfaces. eOx Aircraft Cleaner completely removes difficult substances such as hydraulic oil, grease, carbon, brake dust and dirt safely and easily. Unlike other cleaners that only remove surface contamination, eOx AC removes chemicals and dirt from the grain of the paint thus making it look new and extending its useful life. eOx AC conforms to Boeing D6-17487, Douglas CSD #1, AMS 1525B and AMS 155A.

Application

eOx AC can be used in either wet wash or dry wash aircraft cleaning applications. It can also be used to clean smaller parts in an ultrasonic cleaning tank.

  • When applying eOx AC with a spray applicator, start working from the bottom to the top to avoid getting stripes on the fuselage or other large surfaces.
  • Work on limited areas so that product does not dry before rinsing.
  • Whatever system is used for cleaning with eOx AC, a mechanical action (brush, sponge, aeration of solution, ultrasonic, etc.) is required to break the surface tension of the dirt. Just wetting or soaking for an extended time will not be sufficient for cleaning.
  • After 2 cleanings, eOx AC will form an anti-static layer on the cleaned surface. This layer helps prevent dirt from sticking to the surface in the future, thereby making it easier to remove. Over time, the dilution can then be increased up to 1:8 maximum.
  • Warming eOx AC accelerates the cleaning process.
  • Circulation of the solution in a parts washer will enhance cleaning.
  • Ultrasonic baths may accelerate cleaning time, but are not required.
  • Contaminants may be precipitated or filtered out of the eOx AC product solution to facilitate disposal. The remaining eOx AC may be reused provided pH continues to meet specifications.
