Certified Aircraft Cleaner
Without a doubt, the most unique, efficient, and cost effective Aircraft "Surface Cleaner" available to date. In among the hundreds of "super" cleaners, available in the aviation market, this product truly stands out from the others. For over 15 years, we have intentionaly stayed away from carrying and representing any liquid "cleaners & degreasers". They seem to be as common as dirt, manufactured by everybody and come with some pretty tall claims. We receive many products across our desk for testing and evaluation. Many of these clean extraordinarily well, in fact, so well, they start degrading the surface rather rapidly and often actually accelerate erosion & corrosion. These products are not typically "certified" even though, the manufacturers claim use by many major airlines, aircraft owners and manufacturers. We also get "environmentally friendly" citrus based products to try. They can be, indeed certified, and "user friendly", but unfortunately, are only able to remove the lightest of surface dirt using an excessive amount of labor. DEXTAIR, carries the best characteristics of all the above, along with the latest aviation certifications, making it safe to the aircraft and cleaning personnel, plus extremely efficient using the least amount of effort.

DEND DEXTAIR™ has been specifically designed for rapid and safe cleaning of interior and exterior aircraft surfaces. DEXTAIR™ has been developed, through extensive research and trials, to clean thoroughly, effectively and safely, and not to leave any white residue, even when left unattended to dry on the surface. As a result of a built-in rinsing agent, DEND DEXTAIR™ will effectively reduce calcium deposits on the dried aircraft. A specially developed, proprietary wax emulsion, greatly inproves the "Rinse Out" characteristics, increases surface reflection and helps protects the surface from dirt absorbtion.The end results affords a cleaner surface, with an extended time, between necessary cleaning operations, (hence, less cleaning operations over an annual basis.) "DEND DEXTAIR™" conforms with all the stringent European Commission regulations, regarding the environment and Health & Safety. (Low alkalinity, pH <9.8, provides increased safety for people handling the detergent and is non damaging to the environment. DEXTAIR does NOT contain any Sodium, Silicates or Phosphates).

Main benefits:

RECOMMENDED FOR: Manual and machine cleaning of aircraft. DEXTAIR is also very effective as a cleaner for wheels and brakes. (For very heavily soiled & problem areas such as wheel wells etc., see DEXTAIR Gel, below)

The DEND DEXTAIR GEL is chemicaly identical to the regular concentrate, but through the use of a thickening agent, is available in a "GEL" form. This slows the evaporation rate, allowing it to remain on the surface longer, to "break down" heavier soil.

DEND DEXTAIR GEL is a specially developed cleaning product, for heavily soiled aircraft surfaces, ie: underside surfaces, wheel wells, etc.
