Nycote 7-11 Dark Blue

Apply Nycote® 7-11 Dark Blue to substrates that need protection from corrosion, electrical conduction and friction. The liquid formula can be easily applied by painting, spraying or dipping areas that need protection from aircraft fuels, oil, lubricants, phosphate ester hydraulic fluids, salt spray and water.

Nycote® 7-11 Dark Blue was designed for EMBRAER Aircraft to specifically to meet their stringent requirements. Nycote® 7-11 Dark Blue also provides excellent high impact, abrasion resistance, flexibility and toughness at temperatures of -70°F to +300°F (-57°C to +149°C). Nycote® 7-11 Dark Blue has a six-month shelf life and the container can be resealed throughout.

Nycote® Dark Blue is used to protect and secure electrical connection installations, fasteners, and numerous other potentially moist areas in all aircraft at the EMBRAER manufacturing site located in São Paulo Brazil.

Application Instructions

  • Carefully clean the surface of oils, grease and dust by using Nycote® Thinner Type I followed by NycleanTM for maximum Nycote® adhesion.
  • Shake container before using.
  • Apply Nycote® resin by brush, dip, fill and drain, or spraying techniques.
  • Allow one to two hours to achieve tack free surface before applying second coat.
  • When spraying we recommend using Nycote® Thinner Type II at a 25% to 50% volume ratio in order to reduce cobwebbing. Use low air pressure 10-20 p.s.i.
  • Allow wetted surface to air dry in dust and lint free area.
  • Follow cure timetable for full cure of film.
  • Cleanse equipment with Nycote® Thinner Type I.

Cure Timetable

Allow one to two hours to become tack free. In dry air allow 72 hours at room temperature for full cure or:

Heat 12 hours @ 120°F (49°C)
Heat eight hours @ 150°F (66°C)
Heat four hours @ 180°F (82°C)
Heat two hours @ 220°F (105°C)
Cure film temperature range is -70°F to +300°F (-57°C to 149°C)

Storage Temperature Requirements

Store at 70°F (21°C). Keep away from fire or flame.

Note: Ideal storage temperature is 70°F (21°C); acceptable storage range is between 65°F to 80°F (18.3°C to 26.7°C). Storing below 65°F (18.3°C) may cause cloudiness or gel; heat at 180°F (82°C) for two hours. This should restore the product to its normal liquid condition. If possible, re-verify viscosity with Zahn #2 cup (50-90 seconds).

Nycote® 7-11 Dark Blue has a six-month shelf life. The container can be opened, applied and then re-sealed for a period of six months. The storage temperature should be maintained for the entire shelf life period. The container must always be stored in an upright position. If the storage temperature is not the ideal, nor within the acceptable range, the result may change the nature of the Nycote® product, as well as, causing cloudiness of the liquid. At all times, the product should be kept from freezing.
