In aviation maintenance and repairs, some situations call for a different type of protection against corrosion - a non-hardening, non-drying corrosion inhibiting compound (CIC). These properties are exactly what make Av-DEC's range of Ox-Block products so crucial.
What are these specific repair or maintenance scenarios, you ask? Ox-Block is useful for the following:
The latest products in Av-DEC's corrosion-prevention catalog are the high-performing Ox-Block group of sealants that include:
It can be confusing to sift through the multitude of sealants and corrosion-prevention solutions on the market. To simplify your search and your decision, keep these questions in mind:
If your answer to these questions is yes, Ox-Block and Av-DEC's extensive after-sales services are the solutions to your maintenance and repair challenges.
Ox-Block CICs are single-component, organic-based sealants that do not require mixing and are compatible with many surfaces and metals including steel, aluminum, copper, and zinc. Once applied, they create a non-hazardous film that coats the surface and provides long-term protection against corrosion. The key features of Ox-Block include:
Chromatic sealants are applied to improve the corrosion resistance of a bare metal. Conventional chromatic sealants are inorganic and require you to mix multiple components. The application process involves immersion with adhesive materials or pretreatment with a phosphate solution. It's a non-trivial process that requires extensive technical know-how. Plus, the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) rates some chromatic corrosion-resistant sealants such as hexavalent chromate as environmentally hazardous.
Ox-Block CICs ease your concerns by eliminating the environmental and technical problems inherent in most chromatic corrosion-resistant sealants.
The CAC01 is a high-performing, one-component corrosion-preventive sealant from Av-DEC's Ox-Block family. The sealant was developed for general-purpose applications across the aviation industry and the industrial sector. It is intended to fill gaps, voids, cracks, mating areas, and threaded holes to create an extensive water-tight seal that is impervious to moisture and other corrosion-causing agents. Like other sealants from the Ox-Block catalog, CAC01 is non-hazardous, does not cure, and remains easy to apply or remove.
The Ox-Block (PAC02) is a one-component, non-hardening sealant developed for general-purpose application across the aviation, aerospace, and automotive industry. PAC02 empowers maintenance and repair teams with a non-hardening, non-hazardous corrosion-prevention sealant to quickly eliminate and prevent moisture infiltration. With PAC02, you get a powerful sealant that is easy to apply and remove from cracks, gaps, voids, holes, threads, and mating areas.
The Ox-Block (PAC03) is a one-component, organic-based sealant with a synergistic inhibitor system and special passivated sacrificial particles that preferentially oxidize before the aircraft structure. Like other sealants in the Ox-Block group, the PAC03 is easily applied to and removed from surfaces, cracks, or gaps. This is possible because it doesn't harden and is designed to be compatible with diverse metallic surfaces. Its most important feature is the synergistic inhibitor system developed at the Av-DEC labs. The synergistic inhibitor system offers double protection and prevents both anodic and cathodic corrosion reactions.
The innovative Ox-Block formulas create environmental barriers that increase the life cycle of your aircraft. Our high-performing, non-drying, non-hazardous, corrosion-inhibiting solutions are available at your request. Isn't it time you gave yourself some peace of mind by eliminating those tricky corrosion safety issues?
Av-DEC Ox-Block products are high-performing, user-friendly replacements for other hazardous corrosion-inhibiting compounds in today's market. Experienced scientists in our chemistry labs developed them according to all relevant industry specifications.
