Triple7 Aircraft & Metal Cleaner Brochure Triple7 Aircraft & Metal Cleaner SDS Triple7 Aircraft & Metal Cleaner Application Sheet

A powerful bio-based cleaner and degreaser used for cleaning aircraft exteriors, components and soft metals.

  • High-tech, super concentrated aircraft cleaner & degreaser
  • Ideal for aircraft manufacture, service and maintenance
  • Aircraft detailing and fuselage cleaning
  • Aviation parts cleaning
  • Safe for engine cleaning
  • Safe for soft metals such as aluminium and magnesium
  • Removes hydrocarbon soils
  • Retards tarnish
  • No toxic or hazardous ingredients
  • Readily biodegradable
  • Safe to use, store & dispose of

 

Triple7 Aircraft & Metal Cleaner is a powerful, safe and versatile aircraft exterior cleaner and degreaser. It is suitable for use on a wide range of aircraft surfaces and materials including metals, acrylics, glass, rubber, paint and vinyl. 

This high-tech organic cleaner and degreaser effectively removes a wide range of staining and soiling, without damaging surfaces. Triple7 Aircraft & Metal Cleaner is safe for soft metals and protects against tarnish and oxidation.

Triple7 Aircraft & Metal Cleaner has been Defence Codified and is approved by Boeing, Airbus and Douglas.

Triple7 Aircraft & Metal Cleaner is a low to moderate sudsing, highly concentrated surfactant cleaner and degreaser that is used in the most difficult cleaning situations for the removal of all hydrocarbon soils including petroleum derivatives, fats, oils, greases, lipids, proteins and sugars.

The product is specially designed for soft metals including aluminium and magnesium, and will not tarnish any metal surfaces.

Triple7 Aircraft & Metal is water soluble and will not harm metals, acrylics, rubber, vinyl, glass, fabrics, paint or other finishes and surfaces that are compatible with water. The product will not react harmfully with other cleaning or solvenating chemicals.  Triple7 Aircraft & Metal will prevent scale deposition on coils or lines, and will not harm pumps or seals.

Triple7 Aircraft & Metal is non-toxic, non-hazardous, non-flammable and readily biodegradable.  The product does not clean by reacting with cleaning surfaces but simply causes long chain hydrocarbon soils such as JA or JP fuels, cutting or other lubricants and other airborne soils to repel from the surface and release into a water rinse stream. While various factors such as solution strength, surface temperature, available agitation and dwell time each contribute to successful cleaning, the exact ratio of each may require repeated trials to determine the ideal mix for specific applications.

Triple7 Aircraft & Metal can be used in a variety of applications including:

  • Use on all surfaces compatible with water including aluminium and all soft metals
  • Exterior Aircraft cleaning
  • Vehicle Cleaning and Maintenance
  • Metal Manufacturing Processes
  • Garbage Compactors
  • Marine Applications
  • May also be used in soak tanks, pressure washers, and all types of machine applications

 

The extreme concentration of this product makes it very cost effective.  For general cleaning applications, 1Litre of concentrate makes up to 30Litres of Ready to Use product.  Buying products in a concentrate form saves on storage space and transport costs, as well as lowering fuel emissions related to transportation.

 

Standard Dilution Rates:

 

Heavy Cleaning - Dilute 1:10 up to full strength.  Engine exhaust & carbon, lubricating greases, landing gear, engine degreasing, parts maintenance, asphalt, resins, insect smears, thick laden dust, oily dirt.

Average Cleaning - Dilute 1:10 up to 1:20.  Exterior fuselage cleaning, oily floors, mechanic work areas, tools & support equipment, vehicle maintenance, shipping containers, utility equipment.

General Manufacturing - Dilute 1:5 up to 1:40.  Cleaning parts to remove cutting oils, polishing rouges, waxes, etc. in parts washers/ultrasonic cleaners/dip or immersion tanks.

 

Triple7 Aircraft & Metal can be used in all types of machine applications; eg soak tanks, manufacturing process cleaning, pressure washers, steam cleaners, closed cabinets, ultrasonics and centrifugal machines.  The product is applied by spray, dip or any mechanical means, without creating hazardous conditions.

When possible, pre-wet surface with water. Pre-treat heaviest soil with full strength Triple7 Aircraft & Metal. Use water above 20°C for optimum cleaning performance. Allow to soak for 5 minutes before final application and washing.  Residual product will have no negative affect on the surface.

Improves Business

Better Results, Better System Performance and Lower Costs

Effective and Cost Saving

Triple7 Aircraft & Metal Cleaner is highly concentrated, so a little goes a long way.  It easily removes heavy deposits of hydrocarbon soils through a unique cleaning action that causes the soils to repel from the surface and release into a water rinse stream.  Triple7 Aircraft & Metal can also be filtered and re-used, making the product last even longer.
Plus, you can use the product for so many different applications - you don’t need a lot of different products - making it simple for your staff to use.  Triple7 Aircraft & Metal also protects your equipment, lowering replacement costs.
Using Triple7 Aircraft & Metal for washdown purposes, allows for water recycling, which further reduces costs.

Enhances System Performance

Triple7 Aircraft & Metal improves oil/water separation and helps in reducing overall sludge volume, which in turn results in better systems performance, reduces maintenance costs, and enables water recycling.
The product also assists in filtration by dislodging particulates from filter media and assisting back flushing, which increases the usable life of the filtration media.

No Special Storage Requirements

Triple7 Aircraft & Metal has no Hazchem rating and is temperature stable, so it needs no special storage areas, lowering the cost of transport, handling and storage.  It is also non-reactive with other chemicals, minimising hazardous conditions.

Save on Disposal Costs

Triple7 Aircraft & Metal is readily biodegradable and suitable for waste water drainage and land fill.

Safe for Equipment

Unlike caustic cleaners, Triple7 Aircraft & Metal cleans without damaging the cleaning surfaces, seals and rubbers.

Improves Lives

Health, Safety and Environmental Benefits

Safe for you and your Workers

Triple7 Aircraft & Metal is  a low to moderate sudsing, highly concentrated surfactant cleaner and degreaser that is used in the most difficult cleaning situations for the removal of all hydrocarbon soils including petroleum derivatives, fats, oils, greases, lipids, proteins and sugars.
