Zip-Chem® ZC-5261 is a special oil formulation that conforms to MIL-PRF-7870D.

ZC-5261 is a very effective cleaner and penetrating lubricant.

ZC-5261 penetrates tight parts (ie: heart strands of cables) and deposits a rust preventive lubricating film.

ZC-5261 provides excellent resistance to oxidation, protection against rusting, and limits galvanic corrosion.

ZC-5261 is available in an aerosol as D-5261NS.

Application of Product

ZC-5261 is used on aircraft flight controls, engine parts, landing gear cables, pulleys, pressure seals, cargo hoist cables, cargo restraining system components, door interlock actuating mechanisms, slide mechanisms, hinges, and static joints.


ZC-5261 can be used in temperatures from -65°F To 250°F.

ZC-5261 prevents rusting and corrosion on metals and limits galvanic corrosion from occuring on dissimilar metal assemblies.


The oil in ZC-5261 conforms to MIL-PRF-7870.

It is also found on UAL OIL 4501-10SC.
