Lynx Heli Atom Cleaning Clay
This is a container of Lynx Heli Atom Cleaning Clay. After a full year of testing, Lynx has developed a clay compound that has all the essential elements needed to properly absorb the contaminates RC helicopters are exposed to. This clay composition not only absorbs harmful contaminates that are accumulated throughout a flight, but the clay itself also incorporates anti-bacterial properties to prevent strong odors, and to increase the life of the clay.
When the clay becomes saturated with oil, simply flatten the clay in a circular shape to around 10m thick and envelope the clay in a paper towel, which will absorb the excess oils. Leave the clay in a warm, dry place (direct sunlight or near a heat source) while enveloped in a paper towel for a few hours, and the clay will be ready for further use. When Atom clay is not being used, it is recommended that it be stored in the original container, which will maximize the life span of the clay.
What is Atom? Atom clay is a unique cleaning compound, designed by Lynx Heli Innovations. This clay allows easy removal of the harmful deposits helicopters produce and attract during flight.
How Does Atom Clay Work? Thanks to the elaborate clay composition, this particular clay will absorb any type of dust, grease, oil, fuel deposits, thread locking compounds, and other harmful particulates from your helicopter after a flight. The adhesive qualities of the clay compound allow the clay to be used on any part of your helicopter, even in difficult to reach areas that are often overlooked due to restricted access.
Why Atom Clay Differs From Other RC Cleaning Clay? Clay compounds designed for RC cars that are used for cleaning purposes, will break down prematurely, becoming too soft to properly apply when used in Nitro helicopter applications. Lynx began studying the chemical reaction of this clay when used with Nitro helicopters, and after studying the areas of weakness, new compositions were tested that behaved better when absorbing dust, fuel, greases and oils, allowing the clay to maintain its original composition & structure throughout the cleaning process.
How Do I Use Atom Clay? Atom Clay Compound is a simple and ready to use product. Simply manipulate the clay by stretching & compressing the clay a few times over, allowing molecular friction to soften the clay for better absorption properties. Once the clay is soft and malleable, push the clay over the areas of the helicopter that need to be cleaned, and stretch & compress it against heavily oiled areas on the helicopter. This will allow the clay to better absorb contaminates. When dirt and oil is absorbed by the clay, simply manipulate the clay in your hand, allowing the clay to digest these materials, producing new clay surfaces for further cleaning.
How Long Can Atom Clay Be Used? Due to the nature of the product, the exact life of Atom Clay cannot be determined. But, Lynx has tested this Atom Clay Compound in very harsh conditions by cleaning a .90 sized nitro helicopter every day (flown 5 times a day), and the Atom clay compound withstood this day to day use for a span of 10 full months!
