This 6" by 6" wipe is an excellent choice for cleaning chrome piston cylinders and struts. The wipe is presaturated with top of the line hydraulic fluid: Royco 756. It is lint and static free, made of 100% cotton cloth woven and finished without starch, binders, or any foreign substances. The cloth finish gives this wipe a softer and better dirt-trapping capacity and has incredible retention to minimize fluid drip.
Note: To be used on struts using MIL-PRF-5606 hydraulic fluid. (Royco 756)
Tried a sample wipe before I purchased these & the sample was well saturated with fluid. Iâ€™ve opened two of these new ones & they dont have near the fluid saturation. Comparatively they almost feel dry.
I love aviation! I was refueling my Mooney next to this guy with a Piper. Of course with me being a female pilot he felt he had to educate me on taking care of my baby. He stated that to prolong the life of the landing gear struts I should clean them, which made sense to me. I was expecting for him to say listen Love and step aside but instead he gave me this product, which the label is different, and said see for yourself. I wiped the struts and was surprised on the amount of dirty! Now I use one wipe for five flights. I dont know if it really makes a difference but I feel a little better each time I touch down. I definitely recommend this product.
I fly my Piper Archer in the S.W. US and the dust in this region is very heavy and cakes on to every thing, especially the chrome struts. A friend of mine gave me one of these packages to give a try. He bought it off Aircraft Spruce. Love the product! Easy to use and does not make a mess. Best part is the wipe goes back into the package, thrown under the seat and can be used several times.
