FAQs

How does EZ Grip screw and bolt remover work?
Each drop of EZ Grip Friction Drops contain thousands of microscopic blocks of natural material that are almost diamond like in hardness. These natural blocks are floating in a specially blended biodegradable formula. When you place a drop on the fastener head or driver head or onto the bolt or socket or wrench head and jiggle it this is what happens: The blocks quickly move into place to form an interlocking bridge between the tool head and any differential surface it can find on the fastener head. You can feel the tool lock onto the fastener and while you apply pressure, then turn. Unless the fastener is so frozen that it needs a lubricant to free it, it will turn.
Does EZ Grip Screw Extractor get tacky of hard
No, there is no waiting and the friction drops will not adhere to the tool or fastener.
How can this be demonstrated?
Do the coin demo. Take two coins and press them between your thumb and index fingers, press them together hard and try to slide them against each other – of course they slide. Now take the coins and place a drop of EZ Grip Friction Drops between them and do the same test. They don’t slide because the microscopic blocks have quickly moved into place around the shallow artwork on the coins and when you pressed them together firmly they temporarily interlocked with each other. They have formed a temporary bridge between differential surfaces on the coins. Relax your pressure on the coins and they will slide, apply the pressure and they will lock again.
Do I have to clean off the EZ Grip Friction Drops from my screwdriver or part surface I am working on?
If you want to, but you don’t have to. When exposed to air for a day or so, the ©EZ Grip Friction Drops™ Aircraft Grade biodegradable carrying agent will evaporate and what seems like an extremely fine powder will blow away. There is no silicone in this product so you don’t need to be concerned about priming and painting operations on aircraft or parts surfaces after use as it will not interfere as silicone will.
If I don’t clean off the EZ Grip screw removal drops will my tools or parts surface corrode from it.
No. The carrying agent is specifically formulated to prevent any corrosion to metal surfaces and will not attack O-rings.
What if the screw or bolt won’t come out.
EZ Grip Screw Extractor is designed to interlock your driver or wrench head with the fastener head and increase the torque to help turn the head. If the threads are so frozen in the tap hole that you cannot turn it out try a heavy duty lubricant.
What is the shelf life of Aircraft Grade EZ Grip Screw Extractor?
A. Shelf life exceeds 12 years but we say 10 to be safe.

      3. Then examine for and record the following visible changes in comparison with the fourth virgin specimen of each alloy.
        1. Discoloration and dulling
        2. Etching
        3. Presence of accretions and relative amounts
        4. Pitting

Sandwich Corrosion

per ASTM F 1110


TEST METHOD

    1. Aluminum panels having clad or anodized nonclad surfaces are sandwiched together with filter paper saturated with the test material between the panels. The sandwiched panels are cycled between warm ambient air and warm humid air for 7 days. The coupons are then inspected to determine whether corrosion more severe than that caused by a reagent water has occurred on the surfaces exposed to the test material. This test method may be used for solutions of dry granular material or for liquid materials.
    1. Relative corrosion severity rating system:
  1. No visible corrosion
  2. Very slight corrosion or discoloration (up to 5% of surface area corroded)
  3. Slight corrosion (5 to 15%)
  4. Moderate corrosion (10 to 25%)
  5. Extensive corrosion or pitting (25% or more)

ASTM F 1111-88

CORROSION OF LOW-EMBRITTLING CADMIUM PLATE

BY AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE CHEMICALS


SCOPE

This test method is intended as a means of determining the corrosive effects of aircraft maintenance chemicals on low-embrittling cadmium plating used on aircraft high-strength steel, under conditions of total immersion by quantitative measurements of weight change.

PROCEDURE

Dry the precleaned specimens at 110° C for 1 hour, allow to cool to room temperature in a deslccator, then weigh to the nearest 0.1 mg.

Transfer the specimens to the vessel containing the preheated maintenance chemical solution. Seal the test vessel to prevent loss of vapor. Maintain at the required temperature and expose for a period of 24 hours.

Remove the specimens at the end of the exposure period and proceed as follows:

  1. Hold the specimen in forceps and rinse thoroughly in a 1 liter beaker into which tap water is flowing rapidly.
  2. Rinse thoroughly in water at room temperature.
  3. Rinse with a stream of acetone from a wash bottle. Shake free from acetone and dry.
  4. Place the specimens in an oven at 110 +/- 2° C for 1 hour and allow to cool to room temperature in a desiccator.
  5. Reweigh the specimens to the nearest 0.1 mg and record.

Average weight loss per 1″ x 2″ panel:

0.5 mg/cm2/24hrs.

Paragraph 4.6.4.3.1

Notched C-Ring


          1. Notched C-Ring
            1. Procedure. The ring shall be stressed to 65 percent of the predetermined average breaking strength by tightening the nut until the diameter of the ring, measured across the bolt, is reduced to the calculated value. (In most cases the diameter will be reduced by 0.22 cm (0.087 inch). Any steel bolt of suitable size may be used for the stressing. If equipment is available, this may be done more accurately with a strain indicator and a loading bolt containing a strain gauge. The stressed ring shall be immersed for 60 seconds in the paint remover sample with the notched side down to a point where the ring is covered approximately one inch on either side of the notch. The rings shall be removed and allowed to hang notched side down in air for 100+/- hours. No rinse of any kind shall be used after dipping. Suitable hangers may be made of plastic or rubber coated wire. The rings shall not break or crack during the 100 hour test period.
