MODUK - DEF STAN 68-10
Corrosion Preventive, Water Displacing NATO Code: C-634 Joint Service Designation: PX-24
|Publication Date:||25 April 2003|
This standard specifies requirements for one grade of corrosion preventive, water displacing, for the preservation and corrosion inhibition of certain gas turbine engines and metal surfaces in use or short-term storage. When applied by pressure circulation, brushing, spraying, or dipping, it displaces any water present and forms a transparent protective film after evaporation of carrier solvent. It may be used on low voltage electrical equipment (up to 440 volts) and as a rust penetrating fluid. It may also be used in conjunction with supplementary barrier materials. Water separates from the used fluid on standing, allowing the fluid to be reused. Removal may be effected by flushing, brushing, spraying or wiping with suitable hydrocarbon solvents e.g. white spirit or kerosene.
NOTE: This product must NOT be used as an insulating material.
