NAVCLEAN – a non-corrosive formulation and kit to remove and prevent mildew/fungal growth

An environmentally friendly formulation and kit to address mildew and fungal growth without causing corrosive damage to the cleaning surface

Materials

In many geographic areas and in a variety of applications, the unwanted growth of mold and mildew is a serious problem. Growth of mildew on military aircraft frames has been found to cause corrosion and operational damage, in addition to creating potential health hazards to flight crews and maintenance personnel. Traditional products for addressing fungal growth on metal surfaces are corrosive themselves, as well as environmentally hazardous. These problems prompted a need for an extremely effective and non-corrosive solution to addressing fungal growth in the U.S. Military. A novel composition to address mildew problems was developed by National Air Depot Cherry Point personnel and optimized at NAVAIR in Patuxent River, Maryland.
