Cessna Aircraft introduced a treatment to protect Citation jets based in Europe from the corrosive effects of potassium formate, the environmentally friendly but aluminum-hostile runway de-icer increasingly used across the region. The treatment is available under an enhancement to Cessna’s ProTech factory maintenance program, called ProTech+. The anti-corrosion procedure entails a thorough airframe inspection and application of Corban 23, a super-penetrating fluid that creates a protective barrier on the airframe. ProTech+ is available at Cessna’s factory-owned service centers in Europe.

we are operating a CJ2+ since 6 years in Europe.
During the actual DOC Insp. 10 there has been found Corossion over Ccorrosion anywhere.

We are very astonished cause our C525 before (with the same operating-profile) had no corrsion
after 6 years.

Is there some one with similiar experience?
