Callington Aerocare Gel (CH8150HG) is an eco-friendly, high-gloss cleaning gel specially crafted for aircraft exteriors.
Directions for Use
Washing Aircraft Exterior Surfaces:
Depending on how dirty the exterior is, you can dilute the solution before using it:
• Light soils: Mix 1-part Aerocare Gel with 10 to 15 parts water (at airline discretion).
• Moderate soils: Mix 1-part Aerocare Gel with 5 to 10 parts water.
• Heavy soils: Use undiluted or mix 1-part Aerocare Gel with 2 to 4 parts water.
Note that dilution reduces its viscosity.
Wet Wash Guidance:
Apply the Aerocare Gel (per the above guidance), using a cloth, mop, brush, pad, or spray equipment. For tough dirt, distribute and agitate the product onto the surface. Allow 5 to 10 minutes for it to penetrate the soiled area. Agitate surface again if necessary. Rinse by using flowing water or a highpressure washer, beginning from the top and moving downward.
Dry Wash Guidance:
Apply in smooth continuous strokes over the surface in sections, with a clean cloth, mop, brush, pad, or spray/fog equipment. For heavily soiled areas, let the gel soak in and penetrate the soil (5 to 10 minutes) before agitating. Whilst the surface is still wet, mop it dry with a clean microfiber/soft cotton cloth. Replace the cloth before it becomes saturated with soil.
Heavy Duty Cleaning of landing gear and in wheel wells:
Use Aerocare Gel undiluted; Apply the product on the surfaces with a clean cloth, mop, brush, pad, or spray equipment, leaving a film. Let the gel sit and soak for about 5-10 minutes for best results, then agitate the coated surface as necessary using a cloth, mop, brush, or pad. Then rinse with water.
