Pd680 was magical on the hydraulic deck of aircraft… and also used in the fuel system trainers at the school house….

Also add Trichloroethylene and MEK to your list of stuff you shouldn’t touch but probably did.

...and then 2 weeks later all the servos start to leak!  The Navy actually stopped letting us use it in the hydraulics bay.

I worked in the Ordnance shop at MALS 26 and 29 in the early 90's and we used PD680 to clean pretty much everything.  I went on recruting duty in 97 and when i came back to the fleet, people started using PPE.  Prior to that, I remember using it in spray bottles to wipe down AWSE, and we even used it to cleaned our hands.

LCAC's at Pendleton. We used it when water washing the turbine engines.

Had a guy in our engine room that would use it to clean and polish tough spots on the deck plates It worked great!

Personally I'm more concerned about the valve gaskets that they had us grind off when they were stuck during rebuilds. I flipped one over to find it labeled as asbestos.... No PPE anywhere...

We still used it for basic cleaning.  Just no longer allowed to go up in the hyd bay with a 5 gallon can and a spray nozzle and "go to town".


Brought to you by the same guys that thought little tiny bits of rubber eraser mixed into aircraft soap was a good idea.

I was an aircraft crew chief. We used to use it to wash grease and oil off of our hands.

Tons of it. It was on the "Tools, Parts, Materials" section of the MRC for the TD1A aircraft tie-downs. I was assigned that check pretty frequently.

It would strip all the natural oils from your hands and leave them feeling really dry.
