postheadericon Biobor JF for Aviation

BioborJF® was specially formulated and introduced in 1965 to one of the
harshest and most safety-conscious industries in the world, the commercial and
military jet aircraft industry. For over 45 years BioborJF® has maintained and
even enhanced its position as the worldwide leader in the disinfection of microbial
growth in both jet engines and jet fuel storage tanks, in addition to the marine
diesel work boat and pleasure boat markets.

BioborJF® is a liquid fuel additive that combats fungus and other microbial
life in hydrocarbon fuels, such as diesel and jet fuels, but is also effective in
light oils and transmission fluid. BioborJF® eliminates growth of harmful
slime-producing fungi that clog filters and pipelines, attack rubber fuel system
components and whose waste products aid in the corrosion of metal surfaces.

BioborJF® is simple to use and harmless to the wide variety of fuel system
parts, top coatings, sealants and elastomeric materials tested. It does not
adversely affect fuel performance in engines. BioborJF® is an effective
microbiocide because of its solubility in both fuel and water
under conditions of fuel storage.

ApplicationsBioborJF® is used by a large number of aircraft manufacturers,
airlines, marines, trucking fleets, railroads, bulk storage terminals, fuel suppliers
and by other users of hydrocarbon fuels and oils exposed to the possibility of
contamination by fungus and bacteria.

Treatment procedures–If system is badly contaminated, drain water bottoms.
Water bottoms in storage tanks should be kept to a minimum. Good housekeeping
is important in treating slime problems, but it is not a cure. BioborJF®
is used at 270 ppm in fuel to effect sterilization, and subsequently at 135 ppm
to maintain fungi-free fuel. Ideally, BioborJF® should be metered. However,
in the absence of metering equipment, BioborJF® may be manually batchblended.
If batch-blended, as in tank trucks or small aircraft wing tanks,
BioborJF® should be introduced while the tank is being filled and after the
tank is approximately ½ full. This will ensure faster and more complete
Container sizes and dosage ratesBioborJF® is available in 8 oz. and 16 oz.
Easy Squeeze containers designed to dispense the exact measure every time,
along with 1 quart cans, 1 gallon containers, 5 gallon pails, and 55 gallon drums.
