For the application of CorrosionX® Aviation, CorrosionX, CorrosionX Heavy Duty, NavGuard I, NavGuard II and other liquids
The Handi-Spray application systems were designed to atomize CorrosionX and CorrosionX Aviation into an incredibly fine, smoke-like fog. This fine atomization converts low and medium viscosity liquid products into micro-droplets that stay suspended in the air for an extended period of time. This degree of atomization is key for achieving the most cost-effective and thorough application corrosion preventative compounds and other liquid products into airframes and other irregularly shaped enclosures where direct application is not practical (e.g. around blind corners, unreachable areas, etc.).
For example: When properly fogged into an enclosed area like an airplane wing, the suspended CorrosionX Aviation vapor will entirely fill the void of an enclosed area and deposit a light coating of the product on every surface. This allows CorrosionX Aviation to go around blind corners, to treat the back sides of spars and to penetrate into lap seams and other areas that cannot be sprayed directly. In contrast, although overspraying and saturating an airframe using a common pump-up sprayer will usually not cause any damage, it will cause CorrosionX to drip and weep for longer than it needs to (not to mention wasting money by using excess product).
The Handi-Spray systems will spray CorrosionX Heavy Duty nicely, but they are not able to atomize Heavy Duty as it is too thick to "fog".
Used extensively by the U.S. military as well as NATO forces, all CorrosionX products and Handi-Spray application equipment have been assigned National Stock Numbers (NSN) by the General Services Agency (GSA) and are available for procurement through the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA).
This Handi-Spray™ Belt Pak Nav Air System is a basic unit that includes the three (3) wands specified by U.S. Navy Naval Air Systems Command NAVAIR for F/A-18 Hornet and other Department of Defense applications.
