Developed for use in the aerospace industry, Actasol Gel is a thickened solvent blend and low volatility substitute for Methyl Ethyl Ketone (M.E.K.), 1,1,1 Trichloroethane, Toluene and blends of M.E.K. and Toluene. With the ability to cling on surfaces, Actasol Gel is made especially for surface preparation, general solvent cleaning and removal of corrosion preventative coatings (CIC) and unwanted stickers/labels.

Actasol Gel 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.

Actasol Gel can be used as a surface cleaner prior to painting and sealing of aircraft components.

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

1) Actasol Gel is used as supplied.

2) Applied by brush, rag, scotch brite pad as appropriate and agitate Actasol Gel on the surface to be cleaned.

3) For stickers/labels with adhesives, leave to dwell for 5 to 10 minutes before removing using a fine abrasive pad or scraper. Solvent residues on cleaned fabrics can be removed using absorbent cloths or a mild alkaline cleaning solution.
