Super CORR A

Case Study: Protection For Military Applications

F-16 Fighter aircraft

TOP : SuperCORR A is used by the U.S. Air Force on the F-16 Fighter aircraft's avionics and electronics systems connectors as well as all other military air craft.

The U.S Air Force in conjunction with Air Force Research Lab, Batelle Labs, Sandia National Laboratories, and a number of F-16 and F-15 squadrons tested SuperCORR Afor several years, with excellent results. Read more.

SuperCORR A is approved for use on the U.S. Air Force's F-16 and F-15's as well as all other U.S. military aircraft as a lubricant and corrosion preventive compound to improve contact lubrication and prevent corrosion in all avionic, electronics, electrical systems, switches, connector's and components. Using SuperCorr-A was found to improve aircraft reliability and mission capable rates as well as reducing maintenance Man-Hours there by reduces costs. SuperCorr-A has also reduces or eliminates False Alarms failures as well as No Fault Found problems in avionics and electrical systems and components and problems caused by Cadmium corrosion.

SuperCorr-A conforms to U.S. Mil-DTL-87177B (Formally Mil-L-87177A).

The Air Force has calculated a cost saving of approximately $450 million, over three years, on the 150 F-16 aircraft based at different geographic locations around the U.S. Initial estimates indicate cost savings could reach $500 million annually for the entire F-16 fleet.

P-3 Orion electronic surveillance aircraft

SuperCORR A is used by the U.S. Navy on P 3 Orion electronic surveillance aircraft.

Application of SuperCORR A to the flap tracks, jackscrews and asymmetry detector chains of the U.S. Navy’s entire P3 fleet, may save more than 40,000 maintenance man-hours per year.
The cost saving when use is expanded to other areas will be significant. The jackscres extend and retract P-3 wing flaps. As the jackscrews are carbon steel, if any moisture is present corrosion develops within hours.

This corrosion results in additional wear and binding of the P-3 flap tracks and jackscrews. SuperCORR A eliminated this problem.

Application of SuperCORR A to the flap tracks, jackscrews and asymmetry detector chains of the U.S. Navy’s entire P3 fleet, may save more than 40,000 maintenance man-hours per year. The cost saving when use is expanded to other areas will be significant. Jackscrews extend and retract P-3 wing flaps. As the screwjacks are carbon steel, if any moisture is present corrosion develops within hours . This corrosion results in additional wear and binding of the P-3 flap tracks and screwjacks so an oil based lubricant was previously applied during the daily maintenance.
