Solvent & CIC Remover for Aeronautical Use

  • Solvent replacement for mineral spirits and thinners.
  • Cleans oily and soiled surfaces.
  • Can clean surfaces prior to painting and sealing.
  • Bio-sourced ingredients & biodegradable formulation.
  • Recyclable steel packaging.

Developed for use in the aerospace industry, Actasol is a low volatility substitute for Methyl Ethyl Ketone (M.E.K.), 1,1,1 Trichloroethane, Toluene and blends of M.E.K. and Toluene. Actasol is made especially general surface solvent cleaning, for surface preparation, removal of corrosion preventative coatings (CIC). It is a readily biodegradable solvent replacement for mineral spirits, thinners, and chlorinated solvents. The use of Actasol reduces risks of hazardous chemical spills, eliminates most hazardous waste disposal costs, and eliminates the health hazards associated with traditional solvents.

Actasol is a specialty formulation representing a major improvement in Occupational Health and Safety standards as well as being biodegradable and an improved environmentally safe solvent.

Actasol is applied by brush, rag or scotch brite pad and agitated on the surface to be cleaned.

Actasol is suitable for general degreasing and cleaning of all oily and soiled aircraft surfaces including wing leading and trailing edges, hydraulic pipes, landing gear and wheel wells. It’s an excellent cleaner for components.

It can remove CIC (Corrosion Inhibiting Compounds) from all areas of aircraft; below floor structure, side wall structure, doors and wheel well areas.

Actasol can be used as a surface cleaner prior to painting and sealing.
