What is it? 

ACF-50 (Anti-Corrosion Formula)  was  originally designed to protect aircraft from existing and new  corrosion  and is now available to motorcyclists. Aviation products have  to meet  rigorously high standards and ACF-50 not only meets these but  has been  awarded Aviation approvals - MIL-SPEC 81309 types II and III  which means  it is 'approved for ferrous and non-ferrous metals,  electrical systems  and electronic components'. The US Navy carried out  tests using ACF-50  on the jets on their Aircraft Carriers. They found  that ACF-50 so  significantly reduced the corrosion they had previously  experienced they  now use ACF-50 all the time! It works in that type of  harsh environment  so imagine how well it's going to protect your bike!  When applied  ACF-50 forms an 'Active' ultra-thin clear film that will  kill any  existing corrosion cells and will protect your bike against  new  corrosion forming. On areas such as switches or under the tank and  seat,  one application will last up to 12 months. Other more exposed  areas  will need topping up more regularly. ACF-50 has the ability to   'chemically neutralise road salt' and water will bead on contact and   literally bounce off. Ideal for the bike that is used all year round in   all weathers, a superb service spray as ACF-50 is also a lubricant and   penetrant (without loosening structural attachments) and if you put  your  bike away for the winter, applying ACF-50 will ensure that  moisture  will not be allowed to cause any damage! Untreated moisture  will creep  into cracks and will not freely evaporate - ACF-50 actively  ejects  moisture from these areas

How to use

ACF-50 is 95% product, hence virtually no propellant. Keep the tin in  a warm environment, shake very well before use and remember a little  ACF-50 goes a long way, so keep a rag handy to soak up any excess - then  use the rag to help spread the product. ACF-50 has strong capillary  action so will creep into all the areas that moisture can, 'actively'  pushing out moisture and replacing it with protection. Go cautiously  when applying to callipers to ENSURE YOU KEEP IT OFF THE BRAKES. Use  ACF-50 anywhere, except the brakes, on your bike including the engine  and exhaust (will smoke on first start and burn off down pipes but still  slows down corrosion process). Safe on paintwork, most rubbers and  brings up black plastic trim a treat. ACF-50 contains no water and is  approved for electrics so spray directly into electrical joints and  components where it will prevent corrosion induced failures and high  resistance joints. Works well at stopping dirt, mud and salt from  sticking. You can come back from a winter ride with the bike 'white with  salt' - a quick wash off and it's gone with the bike still protected.  Areas not in direct contact with the elements ie tank/seat areas,  electrics require treating approx once a year. Other exposed areas  re-apply as necessary. You can tell the product is still 'Active; as  water will bead on contact...having no water content and not being water  soluble ACF-50 only dissipates by being 'sacrificial' whilst stopping  existing or new corrosion so just re-treat as required.

Remember,  ACF-50 protects jets on US aircraft carriers! If it works for these  jets in these conditions, think how well it's going to work for your  bike!
