Polyester Resin

MIL-R-7575C, Resin, Polyester, Low Pressure Laminating

IB 7521 is a pre-promoted, non-thixotropic formulated polyester resin. It is specifically designed for adaptability to many different reinforced plastic moldings and fabricating methods. It also has unlimited uses in the areas of locking and sealing threaded parts against vibration and leakage. IB 7521’s medium viscosity and moderate exotherm make it ideal for lay-up applications. IB 7521 meets Military Specification Mil-R 7575C, Grade A and B. This low pressure polyester resin covered by this specification is intended for use in fabricating laminates for general structural parts, aircraft radio and radar antenna housing, and other applications.

Cyanoacrylates (Super Glue)

IB S-SERIES is a super-glue that provides exceptionally strong bonds, while allowing a very fast cure rate. Coupled with a special blend of stabilizers, IB Standard Grade Cyanoacrylates are a very stable product. The IB Standard Grade Line of super-glues bond more substrates than other ordinary super-glues. IB S-SERIES Grade Cyanoacrylates are manufactured in a variety of viscosities and materials to meet AA-3097 and Mil-A-46050 standards.

IB SI-SERIES surface insensitive cyanoacrylates bond rough, porous and acidic substrates including wood, cardboard, veneer, rubber, cork and leather. Surface insensitive cyanoacrylates cure fast even under conditions of low humidity and work where conventional cyanoacrylates fail. IB surface insensitive cyanoacrylates are available in a wide range of viscosities from water thin to 1500 cps and even thixotropic GEL for bonding a wide range of substrates. IB SI-SERIES Grade Cyanoacrylates are manufactured in a variety of viscosities and materials to meet AA-3097 and Mil-A-46050 standards.

Paints and Coatings

Besides our full line of Industrial, Architectural, and Marine coatings, we provide an extensive line of military paints and coatings. We supply everything from the pre-treatment, conversion coatings, to the top-coat and wax.

Zinc Chromate Primer, Alkyd based

The old stand-by for corrosion protection, zinc chromate primers are becoming increasingly harder to find. We are proud to be able to offer zinc chromate primers meeting the following specifications: TT-P-1757, Rev. A. yellow or green, TT-P-1757, Rev. B, Type 1, Class C, yellow (aerosols available in yellow or green), TT-P-645, Rev. A.

MIL-PRF-85825D, Type I, Class H,
Polyurethane Coating for Aircraft and Support Equipment

Type I of this polyurethane coating is intended for use on aircraft weapons systems and other applications. The combination of all properties of MIL-PRF-85285; component; liquid; cured coating; resistance; mixing; application; cleanability; strippability; along with the composition and solvent content provide the necessary requirements for a polyurethane coating used in the extremes of the naval aviation environment. There are no commercial equivalents that meet the combination of all properties of MIL-PRF-85285.

Specialty Coatings is excited to offer the recently released MIL-PRF-85285D, Type I, class H in aerosol cans. We can supply 2-component, single use, aerosol cans that are qualified to the specification in all gloss levels and most colors of the Fed Std 595 color chart. The aerosol can is capable of touching up 12-20 square feet of surface area. Please call for pricing and availability.   

CARC (Chemical Agent Resistant Coating)

The CARC system is a combination of pretreatments, primers and topcoats. After surface preparation and pretreatment, exteriors of vehicles are painted with an epoxy primer, then with an aliphatic polyurethane topcoat. The interior of hull-type vehicles get an epoxy enamel over the epoxy primer. CARC provides a surface that resists the penetration of chemical agents. This makes for quick, complete decontamination. It does NOT soak up chemical agents the way alkyd paint does. It also resists removal by decontaminating solutions.

Mil-spec coatings can range from dry film lubricants to waxes to corrosion preventives and even lubricants. We specialize in small package quantities of these coatings. Listed below are a few commonly requested materials. Please call customer service if your specification is not listed.

Corrosion Preventives

Corrosion preventives come in many different forms. We offer aviation, long and short term storage, hot melt, water-displacing, anti-seize, and engine break-in fluids just to name a few.

MIL-C-16173E, Corrosion Preventive Compound, Solvent Cut-back, Cold Application.

This QPL (Qualified Products List) material comes in two classes and five grades.
The classes of the corrosion preventive compounds are designated by 'Class I' (High volatile organic compounds (VOC)) or "Class II" (Low VOC) as follows:

  • Class I - High VOC - VOC exceeding 2.8 pounds per gallon (lbs/gal) (340 grams/liter)
  • Class II - Low VOC - VOC not exceeding 2.8 lbs/gal (340 grams/liter). The grades of the corrosion preventive compound are the following:

Grade 1: Hard film  (175 degrees Fahrenheit (ºF) 80 degrees Celsius (ºC) minimum flow point of solvent deposited film).
Grade 2: Soft film.
Grade 3: Water displacing, soft film.
Grade 4: Transparent, non-tacky film.
Grade 5: Low pressure steam removable film

We offer this material in small package sizing as well as aerosol cans of all five grades. QPL Manufacturer Certificate-of-Conformance and MSDS come with each shipment.  Please call for pricing and availability.

MIL-C-81309, Corrosion Preventive Compound, Water Displacing, Ultra Thin Film. (QPL)

The ultra-thin film, corrosion preventive compound covered by this specification is intended for use on any metal surface. It can be used both for initial protection during shipment and storage and for in-service treatment. The ability of this material to prevent corrosion and to displace water and its ease of application when packaged as class 2 (self-pressurized containers) make it particularly suited for service use. The combination of properties of MIL-PRF-81309 provide the necessary requirements for a corrosion preventing compound for use in the extreme naval aviation environment. Type II, classes 1 and 2 compound is intended for use on moving parts where some lubrication is required, such as hinges, bomb racks, and sliding parts. Type III, classes 1 and 2 compound is intended for use on avionic equipment, electrical connector plugs, and contact points.

8030-00-938-1947, 8030-00-524-9487, 8030-00-262-7358, 8030-00-213-3279, 8030-00-546-8637

MIL-C-85054B Corrosion Preventive Compound, Clear (AMLGUARD) (QPL)

The compound covered by this specification can be used on metal surfaces not exceeding 250 ºF (121 ºC) as a transparent, temporary corrosion preventive coating. It is intended for use on non-moving parts not requiring a lubricated surface (such as fasteners, seams, access panels, points, unpainted metal, and where paint is cracked or damaged) This compound is military-unique since its corrosion resistance capability is much greater than that of an off-the-shelf commercial compound, in order to protect against the harsh environment typically encountered by military aircraft.

  • Type I - Self-pressurized spray container (High VOC - Exceeds 250 grams/liter)
  • Type II - Bulk form (High VOC - Exceeds 250 grams/liter)

Class 134A - Hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) propellant
