Re: Adhesive Replacement
I have three suggestions as to where you might find a solution to
(1) Tinker Air Force Base evidently has a system to recommend
equivalent adhesive-sealant-coating systems for aircraft
maintenance. Although I've never used the system, perhaps it
could identify an alternative based on chemical composition or
function. The POC I show listed is Fred Hall at 405/734-7071.
(2)Contact the SAE G-9 Subcommittee; they handle the evolution of
MIL SPECS to AMS specs for adhesives. Last time I talked to
him, Bill Keller of Courtalds was the person who kept the
minutes for the subcommitte meetings. His number is
818/240-2060. Perhaps he can give you some guidance as to
where to look.
(3)A product mentioned in the 26 April 1995 issue of the Air Force
Technology Bulletin might help. It's called SKYFLEX
Aircraft Sealant; it's evidently a tape used to affix a variety
of panels in an aircraft. I have no experience with the product
and thus cannot endorse it, but it may be worth a call. The POC
is Thomas Dyke, W.L. Gore and Associates Inc., 302/368-3700.
