Boeshield T-9* was developed by The Boeing Co. for long-term protection of aircraft. Their research proved that none of the Teflon, silicone, or synthetic sprays held up for long when exposed to a corrosive environment.
- Penetrate deeply into fasteners and fixtures
- Displace moisture and attack existing corrosion
- Dry to a clean waxy film. Lubricate and protect all metals for months
T-9* will also loosen rusted parts and will not harm paints, plastics, rubber or vinyl. Corrosion is a very important factor in prolonging the service life of airplanes. A significant advance in corrosion-inhibiting compounds has been made by the Boeing Company and is now being manufactured and sold, under license by PMS Products Inc. Boeshield T-9* is effective because of it's excellent water displacement, penetration and protective film development. The resulting coating will outlast competitive treatments and exhibits excellent results in salt spray exposure, "EXCO" immersion, and di-electric current tests.
Boeshield T-9* also meets all flammability requirements of Federal Aviation Regulation 25-32 after the solvents have evaporated, and is effective from -40 degrees to 250 degrees F. Boeshield T-9* has a mineral spirit base and can easily be sprayed with a variety of equipment. All that is necessary is enough pressure and nozzle size to form a mist. Simply wet the surface and the desired coating will form after 5 to 7 days of drying. Excessive spraying will only increase puddling and extend drying time. Once on the surface, Boeshield T-9* has excellent penetrating and moisture displacing properties. Using capillary action it will cut through and stop existing corrosion, find its way into lap joints, seams, and around rivets, and eventually weep out the exterior.
However, this activity stops after a limited time (usually 5 to 7 days, depending on temperature and humidity) at which point a waxy film develops in all areas. In this way, the coating will stay put for much longer than the all liquid treatments, eliminating the continual weepage and cosmetic problems associated with them. When reapplication is necessary (usually 3-5 years depending on service and exposure) the existing coating will be re-liquefied and resume its penetration and weepage, again only for a limited period. Boeshield T-9* also is non-conductive and will not cause short circuits in electrical systems. However, care must be taken to keep away from areas where point contact is required, such as keypads on electronics.
Boeshield T-9* has a mineral spirit base and contains no harsh solvents such as MEK or Trichlor Ethylene. Therefore, it is safe to use around most paints, plastics, rubber, vinyls, wiring, and many glues. It is very effective for rust proofing steel tubing on fabric covered aircraft, but should be tested on the exterior skin prior to application to insure no degradation of the material or lap joints takes place. Boeshield T-9* is available in 1 and 5 gallon pails, and both 4 and 12 ounce aerosol spray cans.
