The Corrosion Prevention Lubricant
A super thin film of SuperCORR A forms a hydrophobic, non-flammable, corrosion-resistant lubricating film on virtually any metal surface. It fills microscopic crevices in the metal’s surface, where environmental corrosion is likely to start, and creates a durable, wide-temperature lubricating film between metal surfaces to prevent both galvanic and fretting corrosion.
SuperCORR A was initially designed to extend the operating life and ensure continuous performance of electrical contacts. Currently, it is used in a variety of industries as an effective lubricating barrier to water, salt water, extreme temperatures and corrosion.
SuperCORR A in the Field
Military - SuperCORR A meets the corrosion-related performance requirements of MIL-DTL-87177B. It is used on F-15, F-16 and P-3 avionics and connectors, on P-3 flap tracks, jackscrews, asymmetry detector chains and more than 100 corrosion prone mechanical structural areas.
Avionics - SuperCORR A is approved by Boeing, Bombardier, Cessna, Embraer, Lear, Gulfstream, Hawker-Beechcraft, Northrop-Grumman, Raytheon and other manufacturers to protect electrical and electronic components from moisture, general and fretting corrosion.
Electronics - A super thin film of SuperCORR A prevents corrosion on metals in connectors, terminations, switches, relays, PCBs and other electrical and electronic components. It also provides a lubricating film between mated surfaces to protect against electrical resistance failures caused by galvanic and fretting corrosion.
Marine - SuperCORR A is used on electrical and electronic equipment, as well as slow moving, close-tolerance components, on submarines, commercial fishing fleets and recreational marine vessels to prevent corrosion in humid conditions and when exposed to salt water.
Transportation - SuperCORR A is used on electrical and close tolerance mechanical assemblies such as bearings, actuators, switches, airline connections and high voltage mating jumpers on trains and trucks. Amtrak (AMS# 373703700) specifies SuperCORR A to improve mating of 480V car jumpers and to prevent corrosion, over-heating and electrical pitting on connector pins and lugs.
Applying SuperCORR A
SuperCORR A can be applied by dipping, brushing or spraying a super thin surface coating (less than 1 mil is adequate) on the metal surface. A UV dye can be added for quality inspection. For best results:
l. Wipe off dirt and excess moisture from surface to be protected prior to applying the corrosion preventive compound.
2. Apply a thin uniform coat of corrosion preventive compound directly on area to be protected.
3. Allow to dry for 30 minutes
4. Apply a second uniform coat of corrosion preventive compound.
5. Application by wiping is not recommended. Reapplication of compound is necessary after solvent cleaning or where coating has been damaged by abrasion.
