FEATURES AND BENEFITS of DEND DEXTAIR:
DEND DEXTAIR has been specifically designed for rapid and safe cleaning of interior and exterior aircraft surfaces. DEXTAIR has been developed, through extensive research and trials, to clean thoroughly, effectively and safely, and not to leave any white residue, even when left unattended to dry on the surface. As a result of a built-in rinsing agent, DEND DEXTAIR will effectively reduce calcium deposits on the dried aircraft. A specially developed, proprietary wax emulsion, greatly inproves the "Rinse Out" characteristics, increases surface reflection and helps protects the surface from dirt absorbtion.The end results affords a cleaner surface, with an extended time, between necessary cleaning operations, (hence, less cleaning operations over an annual basis.) "DEND DEXTAIR" conforms with all the stringent European Commission regulations, regarding the environment and Health & Safety. (Low alkalinity, pH <9.8, provides increased safety for people handling the detergent and is non damaging to the environment. DEXTAIR does NOT contain any Sodium, Silicates or Phosphates).
RECOMMENDED FOR: Manual and machine cleaning of aircraft. DEXTAIR is also very effective as a cleaner for wheels and brakes. (For very heavily soiled & problem areas such as wheel wells etc., see DEXTAIR Gel, below)
DEXTAIR is TESTED to THE FOLLOWING AIRCRAFT MATERIAL SPECIFICATIONS :
Boeing D6/1487 revision N - Douglas CSD # 1 - AMS 1526B

APPLICATION : DEND DEXTAIR can be applied on any surface by brush, spray or foam. It can be used with a water rinse or dry, with a cloth "wipe-off". DEXTAIR is also highly effective when used with automated cleaning equipment (ie: cleaning robots).
The DEND DEXTAIR GEL is chemicaly identical to the regular concentrate, but through the use of a thickening agent, is available in a "GEL" form. This slows the evaporation rate, allowing it to remain on the surface longer, to "break down" heavier soil.
DEND DEXTAIR GEL
is a specially developed cleaning product, for heavily soiled
aircraft surfaces, ie: underside surfaces, wheel wells, etc.
DEXTAIR GEL is TESTED to THE FOLLOWING AIRCRAFT MATERIAL SPECIFICATIONS :
Boeing D6/1487 revision N, Douglas CSD # 1, AMS 1526B
APPLICATION: DEND DEXTAIR can be applied on any surface, by brush or spray. It can be left to soak on the aircraft for up to 1/2 hour (30 minutes) before being agitated with a brush and completely rinses with water. Leaves no white residue or streaks.
