Adhesive/Sealant, Fluorosilicone Aromatic Fuel Resistant, One-Part Room Temperature Vulcanizing
|Publication Date:||1 January 2012|
This specification covers a one-part fluorosilicone (FVMQ) adhesive/ sealant, supplied in cartridges, suitable for extrusion and curing to an elastomeric material upon exposure to air. It also covers a compatible primer.
This adhesive/sealant has been used typically for bonding cured fluorosilicone rubber and for sealing applications requiring resistance to fuels, oils, or solvents from −65 to +400 °F (−54 to +204 °C), but usage is not limited to such applications. This product should not be used for fay surface sealing or similar applications where exposure to air cannot be maintained. This product should not be used in thicknesses greater than 0.25 inch (6.4 mm), particularly in applications involving encapsulation.
It has been found that adhesive/sealants meeting this specification do not adhere very well to corrosion-resistant steel conforming to AMS 5516 or MIL-S-5059. Also, these adhesive/sealants liberate acetic acid during cure and proper precautions must be taken.
While the materials, methods, applications, and processes described in this specification may involve the use of hazardous materials, this specification does not address the hazards which may be involved in such use. It is the sole responsibility of the user to ensure familiarity with the safe and proper use of any hazardous materials and to take necessary precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of all personnel involved.
