Sealing Compound, Polysulfide Rubber Preformed Strips for Sealing Removable Doors, Skins, and Panels
|Publication Date:||1 April 2013|
This specification establishes the requirements for a polysulfide sealing compound in putty consistency to be used for form-in-place sealing of removable doors, skins, and panels.
This sealing compound is for use in preparation of form-in-place gaskets for removable doors, skins, and panels, but usage is not limited to such applications. It can also be used for sealing of gaps, joints or other areas where conventional wet sealing compounds may be used. This room temperature curing sealing compound strip is applicable for fuel-wetted and non-fuel-wetted form-in-place gaskets. This material is usable from -65 to 250 °F (-54 to 121 °C) with short term exposure (approximately six hours) to 360 °F (182 °C).
This sealing compound is delivered frozen in preformed strips for use. It provides a one-hour work life when thawed, exhibiting the consistency of a workable putty, and cures to a resilient seal at room temperature that is resistant to common aircraft fuels and fluids.
