Product Information

Ardrox AV8 can be used in all areas of the airframe on painted and unpainted surfaces. It combines excellent penetration properties with good corrosion inhibiting characteristics at a low film weight.

Ardrox AV8 can be applied by dipping, brushing or spraying. For maximum penetration capability and the most effective corrosion inhibiting performance, spray application is recommended.

The coating should be applied at 20 to 40 µm / 0,8 - 1,6 mils wet thickness. In areas exposed to severe corrosion conditions Ardrox AV8 can be overcoated with Ardrox AV30 or AV100D.

Movable parts should be masked before treatment. If Ardrox AV8 spray control or masking of movable components is not possible, then an alternative soft waxy film CIC, such as Ardrox AV25 should be used.
