Low odour SkyWash has a multitude of uses including degreasing, effectively and efficiently removing wet and tacky polysulphides, polythioether, polyurethane, RTVs, silicone sealants - and tool cleaning.

SkyWash offers a safer alternative to MEK, MPK, IPA, acetone and other traditional solvents. It quickly cleans and degreases surfaces and is used in conjunction with SkyRestore and SkyWipes as part of our Integrated Sealant Removal System.

SkyWash can be used as a stand-alone degreaser but can also be used in similar applications to SkyWipes where an impregnated wipe is not necessarily needed. It is also effective in removing greases and oils typically found in aerospace applications. Simple to use, SkyWash can be dispensed directly from the bottle. It reduces cleaning time, economical and leaves no residue using a wipe on wipe off basis. It can be used as a general purpose wash/cleaner without the need for protective measures.

Available in a 1 ltr (Part no. 308-1) or 5 ltr (Part no. 308-5bottle. SkyWash meets the following specifications:- ABR 9-0140, BAEP 9053/1001/1002, ASTM F519-97 Type 1A. 1, ASTM F502, RR-CSS 204, STM40-500.

I have been involved with the Elixair line of products since 1997. I have used SkyRestore, SkyWash and the entire range of Elixair application products on military and commercial aircraft and have verified the effectiveness. The ability to re-sharpen the SkyScraper makes them very cost effective. When used as directed, SkyRestore will significantly reduce the labour required to remove cured polysulphide, RTV sealants and other sealants and adhesives.

SkyWash is a user-friendly method for cleaning up the UNCURED sealants, paints, adhesives and other fluids (Skydrol, fuel etc), without hazardous exposure to personnel or the environment.
