I've never heard of Danitrol. We quit using LPS-3 many years ago. For a short time we used something called T-9. We now use Zip-Chem. I think it's all about who offers the best deal on price. Pretty soon we'll just be spraying everything with used motor oil.

The stuff is called Dinitrol and comes in several versions of varying viscosity (from sprayable liquid to thick gunk to be applied with a paint brush).
The Dinitrol dries out to form a hard, waxy, non-sticky surface. LPS3 on the other hand stays sticky.
Mel, you obviously never worked in heavy MX, else you would know both materials by heart.

True enough. We spray Dinitrol in wheel wells, doors, wing trailing edges, you name it. Seems to work well, but makes a mess of your clothes if you have to crawl through it.


The primary function of the design engineer is to make things difficult for the manufacturer and impossible for the AME.

Jan & Mel, I have seen LPS3 for many years (maybe 30) and always dis-liked it because it is so messy. Recently where I work we got some new (used) a/c which have a substance which looks like LPS3 in all the w/w, only this stuff is hard and does not rub off. Maybe that's Dinitrol. A/c came from KAL.

LPS3 leaves a slightly yellowish, clear residue, while Dinitrol dries into a hard, brown layer.

I prefer the latter because its dry,whereas LPS3 can rub onto when touched.Although if the Dinitrol spray is over lines can create a visual doubt if there is a Hydraulic leak present.

BTW.My question still stands.Has anyone used a Combination of both together in the Wheel wells.

Yes, Mel I have used the combination before. But only because I had run out of one and had to get the job done. Dinitrol is real messy going on (until it dries) while LPS-3 is much easier initially. It is not an issue because both are approved materials. Use what ever is handy.

So Combination Mix is no problem then.
Whats your views on Dried Dinitrol on Hydraulic lines.Sure looks like Hyd leaks at night.Especially when the drops dry if Handgun sprayed.

Nothing like the "Braille" method Mel. Give it a feel and see. A bright light or flashlight will keep the confusion to a minimum. As time progresses you will pick up the subtleties of the differences. Look below the area- is it wet. If there is a leak, a good indication will be the ABSENCE of Dinitrol. Good luck!
