SKY-SE1 is the world’s leading drywash for aircraft. Developed to clean aircraft in locations with little or no water, the product is approved for major airline manufacturers including Boeing, Airbus, Douglas and AMS.

The product is applied by spraying (or spreading) a thin layer directly onto the exterior of the craft then spread out over the surface in 1sqm x 1sqm sections with a damp cloth. It is safe to apply on all external surfaces including the acrylic glass. The product has a dry time of a few seconds, or minutes, depending on temperature and is then wiped off with a second clean micro-fiber cloth, leaving a surface that is cleaned waxed and protected. The product can also be used in wet or dry conditions, you will simply use more cloths in wet weather as they become saturated.
