Abstract : Corrosion inhibitors in JP-4 interact with metals such as iron and zinc to form gelatinous precipitates which give rise to filtration difficulties. The problem is minimal in the absence of free water and is more severe in the presence of sea water than distilled water. Anti-icing additive aggravates the filter plugging phenomenon. All seven corrosion inhibitors currently approved for use in JP-4 exhibited filter plugging but some were much worse than others.
