Active Thin Fluid Film chemistry penetrates corrosion deposits where it chemically emulsifies and displaces the electrolyte. This isolation process keeps the corrosion cell deactivated.

What is it?


ACF-50 (Anti-Corrosion Formula) was originally designed to protect aircraft from existing and new corrosion and is now available to motorcyclists. Aviation products have to meet rigorously high standards and ACF-50 not only meets these but has been awarded Aviation approvals - MIL-SPEC 81309 types II and III which means it is 'approved for ferrous and non-ferrous metals, electrical systems and electronic components'. The US Navy carried out tests using ACF-50 on the jets on their Aircraft Carriers. They found that ACF-50 so significantly reduced the corrosion they had previously experienced they now use ACF-50 all the time! It works in that type of harsh environment so imagine how well it's going to protect your bike! When applied ACF-50 forms an 'Active' ultra-thin clear film that will kill any existing corrosion cells and will protect your bike against new corrosion forming. On areas such as switches or under the tank and seat, one application will last up to 12 months. Other more exposed areas will need topping up more regularly. ACF-50 has the ability to 'chemically neutralise road salt' and water will bead on contact and literally bounce off. Ideal for the bike that is used all year round in all weathers, a superb service spray as ACF-50 is also a lubricant and penetrant (without loosening structural attachments) and if you put your bike away for the winter, applying ACF-50 will ensure that moisture will not be allowed to cause any damage! Untreated moisture will creep into cracks and will not freely evaporate - ACF-50 actively ejects moisture from these areas.

The Facts

  • Kills existing corrosion and prevents new
  • 'ACTIVE' for up to 12 months
  • Excellent lubricant and penetrant
  • Approved for use on electrics and engines
  • Easily applied non-drying, ultra thin, clear film
  • Very economical
  • Contains no wax, silicon, Teflon or water

ACF-50 is 95% product, hence virtually no propellant. Keep the tin in a warm environment, shake very well before use and remember a little ACF-50 goes a long way, so keep a rag handy to soak up any excess - then use the rag to help spread the product. ACF-50 has strong capillary action so will creep into all the areas that moisture can, 'actively' pushing out moisture and replacing it with protection. Go cautiously when applying to callipers to ENSURE YOU KEEP IT OFF THE BRAKES. Use ACF-50 anywhere, except the brakes, on your bike including the engine and exhaust (will smoke on first start and burn off down pipes but still slows down corrosion process). Safe on paintwork, most rubbers and brings up black plastic trim a treat. ACF-50 contains no water and is approved for electrics so spray directly into electrical joints and components where it will prevent corrosion induced failures and high resistance joints. Works well at stopping dirt, mud and salt from sticking. You can come back from a winter ride with the bike 'white with salt' - a quick wash off and it's gone with the bike still protected. Areas not in direct contact with the elements ie tank/seat areas, electrics require treating approx once a year. Other exposed areas re-apply as necessary. You can tell the product is still 'Active; as water will bead on contact...having no water content and not being water soluble ACF-50 only dissipates by being 'sacrificial' whilst stopping existing or new corrosion so just re-treat as required.

Remember, ACF-50 protects jets on US aircraft carriers! If it works for these jets in these conditions, think how well it's going to work for your bike!

    I ride a bike all year round and I have been using ACF-50 for about 18 months. My GSXR has not corroded and it is great on the wheels where all the road salt and grit ends up. All the alloy is corrosion free, and I will be using it straight away on my Fireblade when I pick it up next week

    Highly recommended

    I 'discovered' ACF-50 last winter and was hoping that it was as good as the reports said. In November I gave the bike a thorough cleaning, took as many of the removable parts as possible off my BMW F800ST and gave it a good spraying. Snowy conditions aside, I commuted 300 miles per week and didn't wash the bike until the end of March. The bike was almost black. Guess what? Having removed all the layers of grime - no corrosion, the bike cleaned up like new. ACF-50 is amazing, all that's required is a strong nerve and a little faith!

    "I was sceptical at first but I researched it on the net - It's used by the US Airforce on their aircraft carriers, used by boeing and other manufacturers. I have used it since September and apart from having to reapply it to my downpipes it has lasted through many washes and many winter rideouts, no furring on nuts and bolts or whatever. When you ride a 9 grand superbike it's worth its weight in gold. I have just replaced my tin having used it on my other vehicles. I paid 12 quid-ish. Despite the cold weather I have used my bike far more than before because I'm less anxious about road salt rotting my pride and joy!"
