BONDERITE C-IC 79 AERO, formerly METALPREP 79, is a non-flammable multi-purpose phosphoric acid based cleaner and prepaint conditioner for most metals.
BONDERITE C-IC 79 AERO cleaning and conditioning chemical leaves the surface chemically clean and corrosion free.
BONDERITE C-IC 79 AERO can be used to deep clean and etch a metal surface prior to paint or to prepare a surface for a subsequent chemical coating like that produced by BONDERITE M-CR 1201 AERO on aluminum surfaces. Chemical coatings offer the best affordable substrate for both paint adhesion and underpaint corrosion resistance.
For light oxidation and corrosion removal, dilute one part BONDERITE C-IC 79 AERO with two parts water.
For heavy oxidation and corrosion removal, dilute one part BONDERITE C-IC 79 AERO with one part water.
This is very weak stuff when used on aluminum. I see it useful if the aluminum is already in good shape and you want to just make sure the surface is clean and ready for painting. If you have oxidation or heavy oxidation then this is of no use.
