    CorrosionX

    Has anyone out there tried to thin out CorrosionX for better spraying and atomizing ? What could you use that would not degrade the effectiveness of the CorrosionX ?

    Does it need to be thinned? The tech who sprayed my wings used some long tubing type nozzles to get it everywhere. And my understanding is that it seeps into all the sheet laps and causes problems if you want to strip and paint anytime soon after application.

    What tool are you trying to spray with?

    Best of luck,

    I'm using a home made long wand set up. The spray nozzle isn't the most efficient. It disperses water just fine, but the X is a bit thicker. Need to thin it down to water viscosity.

    Isopropyl alcohol? A quick test would tell you if CorrosionX is soluble in it, and if the alcohol flashes off to leave the product behind.

    Interestingly enough, that's exactly what I did. Mixed it at 1/4 alcohol. Still a little thick, but seemed to permeate out.

    CorrosionX makes an Aviation version which is already thinned down. They also make a Heavy Duty version, which a lot of cable and satellite TV installers use on the cable connectors. I talked to a CorrosionX rep at Airventure several years ago, and he said they are all the same chemically, but the Aviation version has a thinner carrier fluid so it will creep into tight places such as lap seems, and the Heavy Duty is thicker so it will stay where it is put.
