Description / Abstract:


This specification covers an alkaline rust remover compound in the form of a liquid concentrate or a water-soluble powder for dilution with water.


This product has been used typically for removing rust, soils, or other oxidation products from aircraft turbine engine parts by immersion in a solution of the compound at elevated temperature, but usage is not limited to such applications. These compounds are unsuitable for cleaning aluminum parts. Restrictions for cleaning titanium parts may be imposed by the engine manufacturer.


Compounds conforming to this specification are classified as follows:

Type 1 - Liquid concentrate

Type 2 - Water-soluble powder

Type 1 shall be supplied unless Type 2 is ordered.


Remover compound may contain chemicals which, if improperly used, could be hazardous to the health and safety of operators. Protective clothing including eye shields, suitable gloves, and apron should be worn when preparing and using compound. Tanks shall be prepared and operated under conditions of adequate fume extraction and with due regard to the safety recommendations of the manufacturer of the compound together with local workshop safety regulations.

Safety - Hazardous Materials:

While the materials, methods, applications, and processes described or referenced in this specification may involve the use of hazardous materials, this specification does not address the hazards which may be involved in such use. It is the sole responsibility of the user to ensure familiarity with the safe and proper use of any hazardous materials and to take necessary precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of all personnel involved.
