Compatibility of VpCI™-705 with Jet Fuel

Background:        GM Canada would like to use VpCI-705 to protect fuel tanks as an additive to Jet Fuel.

Purpose:                To determine if VpCI™-705 is compatible with JP-8 and DF-2 Jet Fuel.

Materials:             VpCI™-705

                                JP-8 and Pseudo JP-8

                                DF-2

                                Additives: Biobor JF (Biocide), Select 3 (Diesel Fuel Conditioner)

                               

Method:                 Standardized Compatibility Test

Procedure:            The following solutions were mixed:

                               

Sample Name

VpCI-705 %

Additives (% of each)

                                The solution was mixed thoroughly and placed inside a refrigerator for 8 hours.  The containers were then placed in an 80 °C oven for 16 hours.  The samples were inspected when moved, and this cycle was repeated three times. 

Results:                 The following data was taken:
