CARBON-X has been trusted for decades by those who are serious about maintaining their aircraft. It is a water soluble, biodegradable, non-flammable, non-toxic concentrate, that can be used in pennies-per-gallon dilutions to outperform other cleaners. Pleasantly scented, and stainless, it leaves no oily film or residual gumminess. Safe to use on metals, electrical insulations and most painted and plastic surfaces. It will pay for itself in its virtually unlimited applications by replacing many obsolete degreasers with one all purpose cleaner.

Approved for use as aircraft exterior surface cleaner: Douglas Aircraft CSO #1; Boeing D6-17487 Revision L.

Best belly cleaner I have found. Dilute 10 to 1 and use only on belly. This stuff is very potent.

Good de-greaser which cuts thru almost anything!!! We mix 1/2 Carbon X to 1/2 water in a spray bottle to cut thru turbine exhaust on engine nacelles and wheels which make washing our King Air a lot easier! Just be careful to rinse off quickly and not let it dry on plane surface.

Does a great job even at max dilution, which makes it very economical to use.

Great stuff! With a 5:1 mix, I was able to degrease the underside of my PA-140 easily with one application despite having accumulated for who knows how long by the previous owner. Works very well and goes a long way! One and one-half spray bottles of mixture cleaned the entire surface area of the plane, including the underside.

Excellent product. Works far better than any other product used to date. Can use at 20 to 1 for easy cleaning up to 5 to 1 for hard to clean areas.

Works good. I sprayed it on 30/70 mix with a spray pump. Let it soak for an hour then scrub with a soft brush.

Q: Is Carbon X safe for use on fabric covered aircraft? I believe my Taylorcraft is painted with Imron paint.

Per Vendor: Yes this can be used on fabric covered aircraft. The vendor recommends to dilute this 15 to 20:1.

Q: Carbon-x cleaner - is this a chemical that I need to rinse off with water? or is it a part of a dry wash.

Yes, this will need to be rinsed off thoroughly with water.

Q: Can I use this Carbon X Cleaner as a general product for washing the plane? And at what dulution rate? Will is remove the wax on my plane?

Yes, it can be used for washing your aircraft. It can be diluted up to 20:1, but there is not a dilution chart, so actual usage would need to determine the dilution rate for your specific application. It may remove some wax.

Q: Does Carbon X cleaner / degreaser have a shelf life?

This will have a 12month shelf life once opened.

Q: Is this safe for ceramic coated Airplanes?

Yes, this should be fine for that surface but we always recommend trying any chemical on a small test area to be sure it does not cause damage for applying on the whole airplane.
