Requirement

Client: Royal Australian Air Force. 48 Mirage Jets required mothballing for an initial period of twelve months, with an option to extend the protection period if necessary. The client needed a system to prevent multi-metal corrosion and to provide both internal and external protection. The system had to be proven, easy to apply and economical. It was also required that it be easily removed, to facilitate a swift return to service when required.

Preparation

Exterior surfaces were cleaned with fresh water and allowed to dry. Interior surfaces were not prepared.

Coatings

CCI Tablets were packed in perforated plastic bags and used to protect air intakes, turbines, exhausts, cockpits and avionics. All open compartments were sealed to complete the protection. CCI 400 was then sprayed on to all exterior surfaces to displace moisture and seal the surface.
