Case Study for Super CORR A
“The management of “False Alarms” & “No Fault Found” events in Military avionic systems” as it applies not only to Avionics and Marine Industries, but to anywhere there is a chance of corrosion that could effect electronics or electrical systems and components as well.
In his paper Dr. Ilarslan, states that “False alarms (FA’s)” impose a devastating impact on military systems.
SuperCorr-A is a non-flammable product that was developed specially to prevent avionic as well as electrical and electronic components and systems failures caused by corrosion, including “False Alarm and No Fault Found failures”, as well as problems caused by Cadmium corrosion.
SuperCorr-A is a proprietary Ultra-Thin Film, Water Displacing Lubricant and Corrosion Preventative Compound, manufactured by Enviro Tech Europe, Ltd., in England.
SuperCorr-A conforms to U.S. military Mil-DTL-87177 B (Supersedes Mil-L-87177A) and exceeds Mil-L 81309 F specifications.
SuperCorr-A is not a wax or oil based product and is formulated without sulfates, chlorides or halogens.
SuperCorr-A inhibits corrosion caused by exposure to both fresh and salt water moisture as well as the corrosive vapors from Sulfur dioxide (SO2), Nitrogen dioxide (NO2), Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), Ammonia (NH3), and Chlorine (CL12) gases found in numerous environments such as aircraft/airline and the marine industry as well.
SuperCorr-A is being used on both military and civilian aircraft to prevent fretting and other types of corrosion on avionics, electronic and electrical connectors including Boeing-737's, DHC-6 Twin Otter, Bell helicopters, Bombardier BD-700 series and Bombardier Challenger 300/350, Learjet 45, Legacy 650, F-16, C-130, P-3 Orion, F-15, and the Hawker to name but a few.
SuperCorr-A is also being used at BAE Systems, Honeywell, General Electric Gas Turbines, and Raytheon Systems to prevent corrosion from causing avionic, electronics, and electrical systems and components failures.

“Electrical Connector Corrosion Prevention Improves Reliability, Reduces maintenance Man-Hours, Increases Mission Capable Rate, and Reduces Costs.”
While David Horne’s paper focus is about the F-16 and F-15 his paper equally applies to all military and civilian aircraft avionic and, electronics, electrical systems and components as well as marine and land forces and vehicles

An entire aircraft or marine vessel can be grounded because of a single avionics for which there are insufficient spares available. If an FA causes a particular “Line Replaceable Unit “ (LRU) to be called out incorrectly, there is a better than even probability that a second copy of the same LRU will also experience FA and much sooner than expected, the fleet will be deprived of all spares for that LRU.
To then find out that the LRUs replaced had “No Fault Found” (NFF) at the repair depot adds salt to the wound.” Please note that while Dr. Ilarslan is not recommending or endorsing any specific product, SuperCorr-A has undergone extensive testing and has been found to prevent the “False Alarm failures and the No Fault Found” problems at the repair facilities.
As a proven way to prevent corrosion from causing avionic & marine, electronics, and electrical systems and components failures and reducing if not eliminating these problems altogether thereby saving a lot of time and money and increasing avionics & marine electronic and electrical and associated equipment with you.

If you or some one you know in the avionics/electronics/electrical systems department would be interested in obtaining a sample of SuperCorr-A for evaluations I’d be happy to send it to you.

ELECTRONIC AND ELECTRICAL
TOP : A circuit board under a black light that was partially coated with an ultra thin film of SuperCORR A/UV.
The UV version of SuperCORR A gives visual indication of the integrity of the coating and allows recoating after maintenance where necessary. radiation.
SuperCORR A was tested by a leading international computer manufacturer for evaporative weight loss (a primary indicator of corrosion-inhibitor/lubricant effectiveness). After 1000 hours of exposure at 80°C SuperCORR A had a weight loss of 40% (30% after 160 hours), the lowest of all the materials tested.
TOP : Untreated corroded lightbulb. A chemical warehouse storing acids and other corrosive materials had continuous problems servicing the lighting system. One man with a helper to hold the ladder had a full time job removing and replacing bulbs which had corroded into holders. The filaments failed as the current resistance through the corroded surfaces increased. A spray of SuperCORR A onto the bulb connector and the holder solved the problem. Now bulbs are changed as required but it is now part of routine maintenance. Savings of thousands of dollars per year in man hours and hundreds of bulbs.
Corrosion Protection For Railways And Transportation
LEFT : Badly rusted Control Switch untreated:
Electrical failure after 100 hours salt spray.
RIGHT : Switch treated with SuperCORR A:
Electrical failure after 1400 hours salt spray.
As the photographs above demonstrate SuperCORR A lubricates and protects switches in the most hostile environments which are likely to be experienced in the transportation industry.
The tests shown were carried out under controlled conditions in a hot salt spray which accelerates the results, full test details here.
It is clear that the use of SuperCORR A in regular maintenance procedures can bring financial savings in reduced maintenance and replacement costs and more importantly greater safety.
