ACF-50 Anti Corrosion Spray
ACF-50 (Anti-Corrosion Formula) was originally designed to protect aircraft from existing and new corrosion and is now available to motorcyclists. Aviation products have to meet rigorously high standards and ACF-50 not only meets these but has been awarded Aviation approvals – MIL-SPEC 81309 types II and III which means it is ‘approved for ferrous and non-ferrous metals, electrical systems and electronic components’. The US Navy carried out tests using ACF-50 on the jets on their Aircraft Carriers. They found that ACF-50 so significantly reduced the corrosion they had previously experienced they now use ACF-50 all the time!

Description

ACF-50 Anti Corrosion Spray
ACF-50 is designed with the professional aerospace technician in mind. ACF-50 should be used within the guidelines established by the OEM or governing agency for the prevention, control, or repair of corrosion.
ACF-50’s active Thin Fluid Film chemistry penetrates corrosion deposits where it chemically emulsifies and displaces the electrolyte. This isolation process keeps the corrosion cell deactivated.
On new metal ACF-50 forms a self-healing barrier that prevents corrosion from starting. ACF-50 remains physically and chemically effective for up to two years.
It is important to emphasize that ACF-50 is also an excellent lubricant but does NOT contain any wax, resin, silicon or Teflon… compounds that can gum up mechanisms, block drain holes, or trap moisture to cause corrosion.
Although ACF-50 is used primarily in the aviation industry it can be used virtually anywhere that corrosion is a problem. Applications such as interior metal surfaces, structural assemblies, micro switches, avionic components, solenoids/motors, battery terminals etc. See the industry sector links on the right for more information.

What is it?
ACF-50 (Anti-Corrosion Formula) was originally designed to protect aircraft from existing and new corrosion and is now available to motorcyclists.

It works perfectly in that type of harsh environment so imagine how well it’s going to protect your bike!
When applied ACF-50 forms an ‘Active’ ultra-thin clear film that will kill any existing corrosion cells and will protect your bike against new corrosion forming. On areas such as switches or under the tank and seat, one application will last up to 12 months. Other more exposed areas will need topping up more regularly. ACF-50 has the ability to ‘chemically neutralise road salt’ and water will bead on contact and literally bounce off. Ideal for the bike that is used all year round in all weathers, a superb service spray as ACF-50 is also a lubricant and penetrant (without loosening structural attachments) and if you put your bike away for the winter, applying ACF-50 will ensure that moisture will not be allowed to cause any damage! Untreated moisture will creep into cracks and will not freely evaporate – ACF-50 actively ejects moisture from these areas.
The Facts
Kills existing corrosion and prevents new
‘ACTIVE’ for up to 12 months
Excellent lubricant and penetrant
Approved for use on electrics and engines
Easily applied non-drying, ultra-thin, clear film
Very economical
Contains no wax, silicon, Teflon or water
How to Use
ACF-50 is 95% product, hence virtually no propellant. Keep the tin in a warm environment, shake very well before use and remember a little ACF-50 goes a long way, so keep a rag handy to soak up any excess – then use the rag to help spread the product. ACF-50 has strong capillary action so will creep into all the areas that moisture can, ‘actively’ pushing out moisture and replacing it with protection. Go cautiously when applying to callipers to ENSURE YOU KEEP IT OFF THE BRAKES.
Use ACF-50 anywhere, except the brakes, on your bike including the engine and exhaust (will smoke on first start and burn off down pipes but still slows down corrosion process). Safe on paintwork, most rubbers and brings up black plastic trim a treat. ACF-50 contains no water and is approved for electrics so spray directly into electrical joints and components where it will prevent corrosion induced failures and high resistance joints. Works well at stopping dirt, mud and salt from sticking. You can come back from a winter ride with the bike ‘white with salt’ – a quick wash off and it’s gone with the bike still protected.
Areas not in direct contact with the elements ie tank/seat areas, electrics require treating approx once a year. Other exposed areas re-apply as necessary. You can tell the product is still ‘Active; as water will bead on contact…having no water content and not being water soluble ACF-50 only dissipates by being ‘sacrificial’ whilst stopping existing or new corrosion so just re-treat as required.
Remember, ACF-50 protects jets on US aircraft carriers! If it works for these jets in these conditions, think how well it’s going to work for your bike!

Commercial Vehicle Lights area happy to be working with ACF-50
ACF-50, Corrosion Block and Corrosion Block Grease are proprietary products of Lear Chemical Research, a Canadian company that has been successfully developing and compounding anti-corrosion lubricants and greases since 1979.
All three products are recognised by technicians and reviewers everywhere as class-leading products in their field, offering a range of corrosion-controlling features that have yet to be bettered for “real-life” performance.
Lear Chemical Research’s products are in use world-wide in the Aviation, Automotive, Industrial, Marine and Recreational industries. Their ACF-50 product is probably best known for its adoption by the US Military and Coast Guard as the go-to solution for corrosion-prevention on all sorts of aircraft while Corrosion Block is a long-established part of the tool-kit in the marine-maintenance community across North America.
From those core markets the products have expanded globally and into other sectors such as motorcycles (ACF-50), fire-arms (Corrosion Block), water-craft trailers (Corrosion Block Grease), emergency-service electrics (ACF-50), beach-based quad-bikes (Corrosion Block) and wind-farms (Corrosion Block Grease). Many of these environments are demanding as they can be and technicians have stated time and again that only ACF-50, Corrosion Block or Corrosion Block Grease will perform for them.
Lear Chemical’s technical research-and-development success is balanced by combining laboratory-testing with specific field evaluations to ensure that each formula produced meets advertised claims and customer expectations.
