Planning section of Aircraft Appearance for two years.
C.
PRECAUTIONS / WARNIGS REGARDING WASHING:
Officer Incharge is to ensure that the following precautions and procedures are followed by the
washing personnel during aircraft washing.
a. NOTE:
1) All areas not to be cleaned should be masked with a water resistant sheeting such as
polyethylene sheet, grease proof paper or laminated waterproof paper. Use masking tape
when necessary.
2) Particular attentions should be given to masking the pitot-static probes and static ports..
3) All masked areas should be identified by red flags or streamers to ensure their removal
after washing operation.
4) Use warm water & temperature of water, being used for washing, shall not exceed 160 F.
b. CAUTIONS:
1) Do not allow solvents to contact plastics, control cables, lubricated areas, plastic decals,
paints or marking which are resistant to hydraulic fluids.
2) Do not use pressure cleaning equipment which exerts pressure exceeding 50psi on
airplane surface.
3) Pitot static probes must be masked with a fluid tight cover taped in place no cleaning
solution should be allowed to contact probes without subsequent rising, or erosion of the
probe tip will be accelerated in service.
4) Avoid excessive or direct spray on electrical conduits, electrical units, junction boxes,
lubricated bearings and rubber seals.
5) Solvent in mixture may cause swelling of rubber seals, rinse immediately after cleaner
contact on actuators valves, pumps and tube fittings,

4-40.2 CHEM-DRY
Chem-Dry is used worldwide as carpet and upholstery cleaner. The following characteristics
make Chem-Dry unique:
1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
The carbonated cleaning process with
reduced risk of alkaline oxidation.
002 as cleaning agent.
Carpets stay clean longer
No risk of shrinkage for carpets.
Co-application of an effective protector.
Service by professionals backed up by ongoing research.
The stain Extinguisher – the professional Chem-Dry spot remover.
1.
The carbonated cleaning process
Carbonation of cleaning solutions had two significant effects:002 is an acid. All cleaning solution area alkaline.
Carbonization provides an effective pH buffer to alkaline cleaning solutions. Therefore
Chem-Dry cleaning solutions shave a neutral pH value reducing the risk of
alkaline oxidation.
CO2 is the cleaning agent in the Chem-Dry process. When CO2 is absorbed in water its
volume is greatly reduced. During the cleaning process CO2 is released from the
water and expands in volume. This property of volume expansion loosens dirt and
stains from the carpet fibres with the result that dirt can be removed quickly and
thoroughly.
2.
Carpets are cleaned with Chem-Dry within one hour
The water applied on the carpet serves three purposes.
a) The absorption of sufficient CO2 to allow for the carbonated cleaning process.
b) A Solvent for the Natural, the cleaner developed by Chem-Dry.
c) A solving agent for dirt released from the carpet fiber.
Less than 0,2 litter water is used per square meter and more than 50% is removed
in the cleaning process leaving less than 0, 1 liter of water per m2 to dry i.e.
carpets are dry and ready for use within one hour.
3.
Chem-Dry cleans with the Natural cleaner
The Natural is unique cleaner. It does not contain any of the following ingredients:
- Soaps
- Phosphates
- Organic solvents
- Fragrances
- Bleaches
- Surfactants
- Preservatives
- Petroleumbased materials
- Detergents
- Artificial colors
- Enzymes

The Natural is mainly composed of minerals that have been copied from the
nature. It is completely safe for use in all environments. Contrary to traditional
cleaners the Natural does not leave an only dirt attracting residue in carpets. As a
result carpets cleaned with Chem-Dry stary clean as long as new carpets. Tests
confirm that the safety features of carpets used in aero planes are fully maintained
and not adversely effected by the application of Chem-Dry.
4.
No risk for shrinkage:
Chem-Dry solutions can be mixed-up with water up to 50 degrees Celsius.
Combined with the minimal volumes of water and the resulting quick drying
times provides a no shrinkage guarantee for aero plane carpets.

The performance of Zirpro wool upholstery fabrics is remarkable for the diverse
range of properties that it possesses. In addition to aesthetics and styling these
include flame resistance, low smoke emission, comfort, colourfastness,
appearance retention and low strinkage.
An aspect which is often overlooked or neglected is the regular care and
maintenance of upholstery fabrics. Proper attention should be givben to the use of
a recommended dry cleaning procedure, at frequent intervals, to maintain the
flammability-related performance and aesthetic appearance of the upholstery and
repay the operator with extended life of the product.

FREQUENCY OF CLEANING & PROCEDURE:
Apart from improved fabric appearance, cleaning is essential to prevent the deposition
of contaminants on the upholstery which may accumulate and so adversely affect the
flame retardant properties of the fabric.
The frequency of cleaning of a seat cover depends upon a combination of the extent of
use of an aircraft, the particular routes on which it is operating and how often the seat
is occupied.
It may very from cleaning after every flight, for routes where soiling potential is
extremely high, to longer periods on flights where passengers are not served food.
Some airlines sew into each cover a label on which is recorded the date and
details of each cleaning. This procedure is good practice and is to be
recommended for use by all airlines.
At least one organization (FCRA) has experience in the use of computers to keep
records of a fabric’s cleaning history through bar codes attached to the fabric.
Such a procedure may be valuable for monitoring the cleaning of aircraft seats.
It is essential to operate a well organized cleaning procedure and the attached flow
diagrams described below, show recommended schemes which may be adopted to
suit the individual airline’s requirement.
The cleaning procedures available are:
Pre-spotting method
- comprising of sorting, spotting, dry cleaning and inspection.
All good dry cleaning establishments should ;be equipped with facilities for
spotting both before and after dry cleaning. Special tables are commercially
available for this purpose fitted with a vacuum extraction area, steam gun,
compressed air gun, water spray gun and syringe equipment and tamping brushes
for applying spotting agents (Ref. Local fabric care organization).
Ultrasonic spot-cleaning accessories are also available for use with spotting tables.
A hand-held gun supplies a liquid (aqueous or solvent) with ultrasonic vibrations
to the spotting are in place of the conventional spatula and tamping brush
technique. One such unit is “Sono Flash”, Taga Trading Co Ltd., Japan.
Spotting is an acquired skill and success in stain removal depends largely on the
expertise of the operator. The experienced spotting operator can in many cases
identify stains thus enabling him to use the appropriate spotting technique. The
stains may be graded into different types:Water soluble stains such as tea, coffee, red wine, fruit, urine, etc.
Protein type water removable stains such as milk, blood, chocolate, etc.

Water insoluble stains such as ballpoint ink, lipstick, nail polish, shoe polish,
etc.
Unknown stains.
A general guide to the procedure for removing stains as follows:
Water Soluble Stains:
The stained area is first sprayed with water and then blown through with steam,
followed by air, with the fabric over the vacuum extraction facility to maximize
removal of the stain. If this procedure is unsuccessful one of the specialized kits
should be used and the relevant reagent applied to the stain and carefully worked
into, the area with a bone spatula to ensure maximum penetration into the fibers. It
may also be necessary to gently tamp the area with a tamping brush, avoiding
fiber damage, to further loosen the stain before applying steam and air as previous
described.
Sometimes it is necessary to bleach the residual stained area with a dilute solution
of hydrogen peroxide (3%) followed by a water rinse. It is advisable to party dry
the treated area with air/vacuum in order to assess the efficiency of stain removal.
N.B. A preliminary test to check the color fastness of the fabric to such treatment
should always be made if the fastness is unknown.
iv)
Treat with dilute acetic
proceed to vi)
acid (10% aqueous solution)
If stain removal is successful
v)
Treat with alkali (5% aqueous
proceed to vi)
Solution of 0.880 ammonia)
If stain removal is successful
vi)
If unsuccessful apply treatment (v)
If unsuccessful see note below.
Flush with water and completely
Dry before dry cleaning
Note: Many commercial stain removal kits include stepwise cleaning
procedures similar to that described above and also include special
reagents, such as bleaches, digesters and iron-removers to remove
stains not removed by the above procedure.
FINAL PREPARATION FOR DRY CLEANING
Prespotted fabrics together with those which are only lightly soiled (requiring no
special pre-treatment) are prepared for dry cleaning by covering all Velcro
fasteners with pile-tape to avoid damage during dry cleaning. This also avoids the
Velcro becoming clogged with loose fiber and debris. It is also recommended that
upholstery covers are turned inside out for the dry cleaning process.
DRY CLEANING
a) Dry cleaning Machines and Solvents:
In Europe the most common machines use perchloroethylene or Solvent R113 dry
cleaning solvents.
EPM Chapter 4-40

CABIN MAINTENANCE DIVISION
Perchloroethylene type machines are available, for example, from:Donini, Engineering Works, Bologna, Italy.
Bowe, Engineering Works, Augsberg, West Germany.
Multimatic, Engineering Works, Melle, West Germany.
Neil & Spencer, Engineering Works, Leatherhead, U.K.
Solvent R113 (1.1.2. – trichloro 1.1.2. – trifluoroethane) type machine are
available in Europe for example, from:
b)
Universal, Engineering Works, Bologna, Italy.
AMA Duval, Engineering Works, Romney, U.K.
Strongly anionic detergents could be partially substantive to the wool, thus
adversely affecting flame-retardance (FR). Strongly cationic dry cleaning
detergents could react with the regatively charged FR metal complexes in
the fibre, also resulting in decreased flame-retardance. The same effect
would be expected with amphotetic detergents.
Water:
Ideally the dry cleaning cycle should contain no water in order to avoid
possible shrinkage Experience has shown that in practice some addition of
water is necessary to minimize the long term build up of perspiration salts
and sebum which will cause a reduction in flame retardancy.
The amount of water depends upon the tendency of the fabric to shrink.
Excessive shrinkage may cause an unsatisfactory appearance and/or prevent
the cover being fitted correctly over the seat. The majority of fabrics will
accept 2% water on the weight of the load and this amount is recommended
as a guideline. Some airlines use as much as 4% water on the weight of the
load but if greater than 2% water is being considered then preliminary
evaluations must be carried out with the individual fabric constructions to
check their shrinkage potential.
c) Softeners and Anti-Static Agents:
These agents are not recommended since their use could result in the deposition of
residues which could affect both flammability and smoke emission.
d)
EPM Chapter 4-40
Dry Cleaning Procedures
An effective dry cleaning procedure should ideally:I.
Remove soil and stains from the fabric.
II. Remove perspiration salts and sebum known to adversely affect the
flammability performance of the fabric by increasing its fire load. (i.e.
the Zirpro treatment is unaffected but its satisfactorily removed).
III. No cause the fabric to shrink.
IV. Not leave any dry cleaning detergent residues on the fabric. With these
requirements in mind the most suitable dry cleaning procedure should
be based on a dip-wash, filter – rinse procedure.

Dip-wash/Filter-rinse Dry Cleaning Procedure:
A two stage dip-wash, filter-rinse process is preferable to a single dip process to
satisfy as closely as possible the criteria outlined in section 6.5.
Flammability Testing
Periodic testing of the flammability of the upholstery fabric should be carried out
in accordance with the requirements of the aregulating Aviation Authoir;t under
whom the carrier operates to ensure the effectiveness and efficiency of the dry
cleaning process.
ECONOMICS
Unit Costs for Dry Cleaning.
The procedures proposed do not represent a major departure from normal dry
cleaning practice, but changes from normal costings which, at the time of writing,
were 1.20/lb fabric in the UK (2.6/kg fabric) may be necessary because of
particular process features:a)
b)
c)
d)
9.
Incidence of stains requiring pre or post spotting in the manner described
which may necessitate some additional labour time allowance.
Preparation for cleaning – reversing covers twice as well as Velcro tape
protection will add to the costs.
Machine under loading and the requirement for a small/medium sized
machine will tend to increase operational costs, i.e. solvent/energy usage.
The requirement for a nonionic detergent could have a significant effect
depending on the scale of this work intake in relation to normal dry cleaning
processes.
Therefore the additional cost over the normal charges in the UK 92.6/kg
fabric) for the extra process features will be variable, but should be more than
covered by the increased number of units returned to service by the more
effective cleaning procedures. Replacement costs for a three piece seat cover
for one UK airline in 1986 was 80 (including fabric and making-up).
Summary of Common Faults From Commercial Experience
Experience over a number of years with dry cleaning of Zirpro wool upholstery
fabrics has contributed to the advice presented in this publication. The following
important procedures must be considered carefully:
a)
b)
EPM Chapter 4-40
Zirpro wool upholstery should not be dry cleaned with fabrics treated with
outer finishes, as contamination could occur.
To avoid unnecessary shrinkage not more than 2% water based on the dry
weight of the load should be applied. Certain fabric constructions may allow
higher levels to be used but the fabric shrinkage potential should be
determined experimentally first.
