, Anti-Corrosion Formula, is a state of the art, anti-corrosion/lubricant compound, that has been specifically designed for the Aero Space Industry. ACF-50 is qualified under Mil-C-81309-E, Amendment 3, Type II. ACF-50 is manufactured under ISO 9000 Certified Processes.


It can be described as an ultra-thin fluid film compound which must be applied on an annual basis. ACF-50 actively penetrates through the corrosion deposits to the base of the cell where it emulsifies and encapsulates the electrolyte, lifting it away from the metal surface. ACF-50 then dispels this moisture and provides an atmospheric barrier which prevents any further moisture contact, thereby keeping the cell inactive. This compound continues to actively penetrate and "creep" into the tightest of seams, lap joints, micro cracks and around rivet heads, dissipating the moisture, even salt water, in these corrosion prone areas. These unique abilities of ACF-50 remain effective for 12 months, gradually disappearing as it is chemically consumed.

ACF-50 is designed with the professional aerospace technician in mind. ACF-50 should be used within the guidelines established by the OEM or governing agency for the prevention, control, or repair of corrosion.

ACF-50's active Thin Fluid Film chemistry penetrates corrosion deposits where it chemically emulsifies and displaces the electrolyte. This isolation process keeps the corrosion cell deactivated.

On new metal ACF-50 forms a self-healing barrier that prevents corrosion from starting. ACF-50 remains physically and chemically effective for up to two years.

It is important to emphasize that ACF-50 is also an excellent lubricant but does NOT contain any wax, resin, silicon or Teflon... compounds that can gum up mechanisms, block drain holes, or trap moisture to cause corrosion.

Although ACF-50 is used primarily in the aviation industry it can be used virtually anywhere that corrosion is a problem. Applications such as interior metal surfaces, structural assemblies, micro switches, avionic components, solenoids/motors, battery terminals etc.

  • ACF-50 is an excellent penetrant.
  • ACF-50 provides excellent low-shear lubrication to moving parts and cables.
  • ACF-50 kills any corrosion currently in progress with just one application.
  • Removal of the corrosion by-product is not necessary.
  • ACF-50 is good for rubber, preventing it from cracking or drying out.
  • In most applications, ACF-50's unique properties will last for 24 months before it is consumed and needs to be re-applied.
  • The ultra-thin-film does not attract and hold salt crystals and dirt particles.
  • The ultra-thin film does not "dry". It stays a flexible liquid and therefore seals the surface better as the surface expands and contracts.
  • ACF-50 will not displace or melt any grease which is already in place. It will mix with it and make it more efficient.
  • ACF-50 will not support combustion.
  • ACF-50 has a very low percentage of Volatile Organic Compounds (less than 17%).
  • ACF-50 is non-carcinogenic and virtually non-toxic. Incidentally, full toxicality testing has been done to support this claim.
  • ACF-50 can be easily removed with MEK or soap and water.
  • ACF-50 will not harm any plastics or painted surfaces.
  • ACF-50 can be safely applied to electronics such as radios, timers, test equipment, antenna connections, computers, etc. However, we recommend you avoid using it on LED's, LCD's and soft membrane switches.
  • ACF-50 can be safely applied to electrical components such as alternators, starters, magnetos, generators, distributors, carburetors, wiring, switches, rheostats, compressors, battery terminals, light bulb sockets, electrical connectors, circuit breakers, ignition systems, wire harnesses, etc.
  • ACF-50 is qualified under Mil-C- 81309, Amendment 3, Type II. It also meets the performance requirements of BMS 3-23E, CSD#1, DMS 2150, and TN A 007.10138. It is also listed on the United States Coast Guard Authorized Chemical List for the HC-130 platform.

ACF-50 holds written OEM approvals from the following manufacturers: Bombardier Regional Aircraft, Douglas/Boeing Helicopter, ATR Regional Transport, Bell Helicopter Textron, The New Piper Aircraft, Gulfstream Aerospace, Robinson Helicopter, 

McDonnell Douglas, Enstrom Helicopter, Schweitzer Aircraft, British Aerospace, Concorde Battery, Raytheon Aircraft, Sikorsky Aircraft, MD Helicopters, Cessna Aircraft, Pilatus Aircraft, Beech Aircraft, Van's Aircraft, Extra Aircraft, Hiller Aircraft, Air Tractor, Lake Aircraft, Rolls-Royce, Britten-Norman Aircraft, Learjet, and Canadair
