National Corrosion Control for Helicopters Now Open in Missouri

Rust is one of National Defense’s long-time enemy. It’s been costing the government a huge sum of money for repairs annually. And so to counter its destructive effects on Army’s Black Hawks, a corrosion center was opened last December 19 in Missouri.

The National Guard facility is officially called as Corrosion Control Center. It is a part of the National Guard’s Theatre Aviation Sustainment Maintenance Group in Springfield-Branson National Airport.

The center is basically a helicopter repair facility providing corrosion control services to Black Hawks. As one of four helicopter maintenance supports in the country, it will be supporting 14 states or regions. Its crews’ basic function is to strip the aircraft of paint, inspect for rust, treat and to re-paint it.

A ribbon-cutting Monday marked the opening of a National Guard facility supporting the U.S. Army’s Black Hawk helicopters.

It’s called a Corrosion Control Center, part of the National Guard’s Theatre Aviation Sustainment Maintenance Group out of Springfield-Branson National Airport.

The Springfield facility provides maintenance support for a 14-state region. It’s one of only four like it in the country.

“”The reality is, we’ve never painted aircraft at this facility, of this magnitude,” says Richard Lawrence, allied trades foreman. “We used to paint air frames at the AVCRAD shop, however, not on this magnitude. It is a big deal. It’s awesome to be a part of it and support the 14 state region.”

Like the helicopters, any metal item or surface is prone to corrosion. Thus, all metal pieces need regular inspection. However, if rust had already formed, an immediate rust removal treatment is a requirement.

Rust removal though will not be effective without the help of a rust removal solution. Nonetheless, not all available rust removers can provide positive results. And so, your rust removal product must be well-picked.

For a rust treatment that’s both effective and safe, opt for a non-toxic rust remover. And one that can be sure save your metal items all while protecting your health is Rusterizer.
