Degreasing is an essential part of maintenance, but before you get down to actually cleaning your aircraft you must prepare yourself for the task.
First, wash your hands and remove any jewellery, remember that gold ring on your hand could become an etching tool that can leave scratches and swirls on your plane.
Now it’s time to get your aviation-grade aerospace wipes from Speciality Wipes, that is abrasion resistant with a base material that’s extremely tough. For your efficiency, our composite wipes can be supplied in either buckets or tubs plus pouches that are easy to dispense.

Protecting Your Paintwork

Depending on the condition of your paintwork, you may need to look at removing any oxidation and stained paint that lies close to the paint layer’s surface. This can be a tricky process, so using composite wipes is the best way to maintain the protective coating of your aircraft.

Protect the Most Vulnerable Parts of Your Engine

Cleaning the engine of your aircraft requires discipline, especially for the vulnerable parts that are more susceptible to damage.
