Building a Metal Aircraft?Concerned about corrosion?
Most homebuilt aircraft have a substantial amount of aluminum and steel parts that need to be protected from environmental challenges: moisture, salt, etc. While some builders prime and paint every single metal part (back and front - inside and out!) this is an expensive and time consuming process for many of us.
Another well known technique for protecting metal parts (used by general aviation aircraft fleet maintenance) is Fluid Thin Film Coating provided as off the shelf products: ACF-50 and CorrosionX. Out tip of the week video will introduce you to this method of corrosion protection that provides the same benefits to your homebuilt metal aircraft.
