Durable adhesive bonds to aluminum alloys can be obtained reliably only through proper selection and careful control of the materials used and the steps in the bonding process. The preparation of the aluminum alloys to obtain clean, uniform surfaces with appropriate characteristics is a critical step. This practice describes how such surfaces can be obtained.View Less
1.1 This practice covers the preparation of clean uniform surfaces of aluminum alloys suitable for formation of durable adhesive bonds to nonmetallic honeycomb materials in the manufacture of sandwich panels for tactical shelters.
1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
