Our Company

Av-DEC was co-founded in 1997 by two engineers in Fort Worth, TX. The company began by working closely with a commercial airline to develop solutions for its worst corrosion problems. Av-DEC was faced with the challenge of developing solutions for corrosion at the antenna and fuselage matting surfaces, between the deck angles and floorboards, along with redesigning the MD80 trail edge wing wire harnesses to eliminate corrosion of connectors and contacts.

Av-DEC continued to work closely with several more airlines to develop and test the corrosion preventative antenna gaskets and floorboard tapes. The gaskets and tapes had great success in laboratory testing and were praised by the maintenance personal for their ease of application, reduced labor, corrosion prevention and several other benefits on field tested aircraft.

The antenna gaskets were approved for flight in 1998 and floorboard tapes were approved in May of 1999. After approval in the commercial airline industry, Av-DEC antenna gaskets and tapes were introduced to the United States Air Force and United States Coast Guard early in 2000. Patrick AFB and the USCG in Elizabeth City, NC both field tested the gaskets on their aircraft. These tests were both highly successful and lead to Av-DEC materials gaining approval from all military services. Implementation of Av-DEC’s materials began in 2001 on USCG aircraft and they are currently realizing the projected return on investment of these products as the outfitted aircraft return to the DEPOT.
