Post ACF-50 Anti-corrosion Spray

ACF-50 Anti-corrosion Spray

This product was developed to protect against corrosion of aircraft on aircraft carriers.

It can be used on motorcycles to protect against salt on winter roads and against the salt air near the coasts.

You can spray or wipe it on.

You'll want to use a small amount as it goes a long way.

I recently sprayed it on a bicycle freehub cassette and ended up spending 30 minutes and using a large number of paper towels trying to get the excess off.

It also works as a detailer.

One application reportedly lasts 12 months.

DO NOT GET ON BRAKING SURFACES AS IT ALSO ACTS AS A LUBRICANT

Re: ACF-50 Anti-corrosion Spray

Interesting... I have a couple vintage bikes that have some unpainted steel surfaces.
How much?
Is it colored like a paint or clear?

It comes out purple but is clear as applied.

$19 with free shipping from Walmart.

13 ounces in rattle can.

Should last me for years.

Two applications recommended for corroded surfaces.

Safe for plastic, paint, and metal. Don't know about decals.

Can be removed with solvent.

It is suitable for protecting circuitry.
