Previous corrosion control treatment used on exposed corrodible surfaces of naval aircraft required the application of two materials a water displacing, corrosion preventive compounds, MIL-C-81309 a brown, thin film material, followed by the application of corrosion preventive compound MIL-C-16173, Grade 4 a brown, tack material. This combination provided adequate corrosion protection, but deposited a rather unsightly brown, dirt attracting film. The need to develop a compound with water displacing, corrosion preventive properties resulting in the deposit of a clear, dry, flexible film was essential. The recently developed compound AMLGUARD, designed with the above characteristics, fulfilled these objectives and performed successfully during laboratory tests and fleet evaluations. Militaty Specification MIL-C-85054AS titled, Corrosion Preventive Compound, Water Displacing, Clear AMLGUARD was issued 23 March 1977. National stock numbers, 8030-01-041-1596 and 8030-01-045-4780 have been issued for the 16 ounce aerosol containers and the one quart bulk containers, respectively. Author
