CHAPTER 2 CORROSION CONTROL HANGARS
Design the corrosion control hangar to provide space and equipment for the
corrosion control processing of aircraft. This corrosion control process can be
performed at either a depot level or organizational and intermediate (O/I) level
facility as defined in NAVAIR Technical Manual NA01-1A-509, Aircraft Weapons
Systems Cleaning and Corrosion Control. Base facilities designed for depot level
maintenance on de-paint/re-paint of the entire aircraft. Base facilities designed
for O/I level maintenance on repair of damaged paint systems and de-
paint/repaint of components only. This does not include de-painting by plastic
media blasting (PMB) equipment. Functions performed in the corrosion control
b. limited detergent washing and rinsing,
c. paint stripping,
d. corrosion removal,
e. protective coating application and painting, and
f. finish curing and drying.
Refer to NAVAIR Technical Manual NA01-1A-509 for detailed functions
performed in this facility.
Locate the corrosion control hangar in proximity to the maintenance hangars and
as close as possible to an aircraft washrack. Access between the corrosion
control hangar, the maintenance hangar, and the aircraft washrack is required.
Consider the prevailing wind in orienting the building in relation to aprons,
taxiways, and parking, to allow for exhaust air dispersal over areas not affected
by solvent fumes. Care must also be taken to site the hangar in accordance with
the requirements of NAVFAC P-80.3 and UFC 3-260-01, Airfield and Heliport
Planning and Design. It should not be sited within any runway safety zone or in a
location where it might extend into any imaginary surface.
ARCHITECTURAL AND STRUCTURAL REQUIREMENTS.
There are two types of depot level corrosion control hangars.
a. Type A corrosion control hangars are designed for carrier aircraft
and other small aircraft.
