Our products are easily applied by painting, spraying or dipping areas that need protection from aircraft fuels, oil, lubricants, phosphate ester hydraulic fluids, salt spray and water. Nycote® 88 also provides excellent high impact, abrasion resistance, flexibility and toughness at temperatures of -70°F to +300°F (-57°C to +149°C). NSN: 8010-01-530-5341



  • Store at 70°F (21°C). Keep away from fire or flame.
  • Note: Ideal storage temperature is 70°F (21°C); acceptable storage range is between 65°F to 80°F (18.3°C to 26.7°C). Storing below 65°F (18.3°C) may cause cloudiness or gel; heat at 180°F (82°C) for two hours. This should restore the product to its normal liquid condition. If possible, re-verify viscosity with Zahn #2 cup (21-27 seconds).
  • Nycote® 88 has a 12 month shelf life provided that the accelerator is not added to base product. Once the accelerator has been added, the formula has a three-hour application window before hardening process begins.


  • Allow one to two hours air dry to become tack free. In dry air allow 72 hours at room temperature for full cure or:
  • Heat 12 hours @ 120°F (49°C)
  • Heat eight hours @ 150°F (66°C)
  • Heat four hours @ 180°F (82°C)
  • Heat two hours @ 220°F (105°C)
  • Cure film temperature range is -70°F to +300°F (-57°C to 149°C)
