CORROSION - A simple explanation:
Corrosion simply stated is a natural phenomenon which destroys most metals by either a chemical or electrochemical reaction. The metal is converted, usually with the help of an electrolyte, into a stable metallic compound such as an oxide, hydroxide, or sulphate. The rate at which metals corrode depends greatly on the environment they are exposed to, and the amount of preventive maintenance they receive. Metals that are exposed to marine atmospheres, moisture, tropical temperatures, and industrial chemical atmospheres have the highest rate of corrosion. The tendency of metals to corrode creates a serious problem in the area of aircraft operation.

RCL 1000 is an all-purpose, lubricating spray specifically designed for thin film, heavy-load lubrication applications where rust and corrosion resistance is critical. RCL 1000 protects and prolongs the life of equipment.
RCL 1000's primary benefits:
- Resists rust and corrosion
- Designed for thin film, heavy load lubrication
- Greatly reduces friction and drag
- Reduces metal wear by forming a high strength boundary film
- Prolongs operating life
- Is compatible with typical seals, except EPDM
- Is designed to withstand corrosive environments
- Speeds drilling and tapping; cutting edges remain sharp longer
- Displaces water
RCL 1000 is ideal for:
- Rapid penetration of rusted and seized parts for easy separation
- Works even in wet conditions
- Pleasant aroma
- Prevents rusting and oxidation
RCL 1000 is available in a 482g/17oz. aerosol can.
Aerosols contain NO ozone depleting ingredients.

Corrosion Block anti-corrosion compound is a state-of-the-art material developed for marine and industrial applications. Corrosion Block has three superior features.
It is a superior anti-corrosion compound that kills corrosion in progress and prevents new corrosion cells from forming for 12-18 months.
It is an excellent penetrant.
It is an excellent light lubricant.
Corrosion Block can be described as a clean, clear, ultra-thin fluid which leaves a non-greasy atmospheric barrier to protect all metal surfaces. Corrosion Block leaves no gummy residue because it does not contain wax, resin, tar, asphalt, silicone or teflon. It can be sprayed, brushed, or wiped on.
Applying Corrosion Block is easy. Simply spray it on the area or connection to be protected until it appears shiny. If the area is heavily corroded then saturate the entire surface. Corrosion Block has good capillary or creeping action that delivers its powerful synthetic corrosion inhibitors into the smallest crevices. Once there, it lubricates and protects against moisture attack with an ultra-thin fluid film.
On electrical systems Corrosion Block works both as a preventative and a cure. With just one application Corrosion Block's ability to remove moisture, combined with its excellent penetrating and strong dielectric properties (40Kv), have brought electronics "back from the dead". By removing moisture from the corrosion by-product and isolating it from contacting the metal surface, continuity can be restored to electrical circuits. Corrosion Block can be used in many different electrical and electronic applications without fear of damaging the conformal coatings used. And it does not harm plastics or painted surfaces.
Exactly how long Corrosion Block will protect depends on a number of factors. Because Corrosion Block forms such an ultra-thin film, surfaces which are subjected to frequent abrasion or washing will have a relatively shorter re-application cycle. However, on protected internal surfaces, Corrosion Block can provide protection for up to 18 months.
Corrosion Block is virtually non-toxic and cleans up easily from hands, clothes, and painted surfaces with soap and water.
Corrosion Block protects: Switches, Locks, Hinges, Awnings, Steps, Batteries, Connectors, Locking pins, AC units, Light sockets, Valves, Fuse Panels and more...
Corrosion Block Grease is designed to provide maximum protection under severe conditions. Its formulation provides both high and low temperature performance, increasing the service life of critical components. Corrosion Block Grease strongly resists water wash out and provides superior protection against rust and corrosion. Corrosion Block Grease outperforms lithium and most synthetic greases and meets or exceeds requirements of NLGI Service Classification GC-LB (automotive wheel bearing and chassis lubricants), which is based on ASTM D4950 performance requirements.
Applications include: Wheel Bearings, Chassis, Winches, Wiring Harnesses, Linkages, Hitches, Hubs, Axles, Springs, CV Joints, Terminals, Cables and more...
ACF-50, Anti-Corrosion Formula, is a state of the art, anti-corrosion lubricant compound, specifically designed for the Aero Space Industry. It is an ultra Thin Fluid Film Compound (TFFC) that actively treats metal using advanced polar bonding technology. ACF-50's synthetic inhibitors and active chemistry penetrates through the oxide deposits (white powder) to the base of the corrosion cell where it emulsifies, encapsulates, and then lifts the electrolyte away from the metal surface. ACF-50 then allows this moisture to evaporate while providing an atmospheric barrier that prevents further moisture contact. With the electrolyte removed the corrosion process is halted. ACF-50 actively penetrates and "creeps" into the tightest seams, lap joints, micro cracks, and around rivet heads, displacing moisture and other corrosive fluids(orange juice, coke, coffee, salt water) in these corrosion prone areas. ACF-50's thin film acts like an "OFF SWITCH" for corrosion remaining effective for up to 24 months.
