Shims, Molded, Filled Resin Compound and Sheet Prepreg
|Publication Date:||1 July 1998|
This specification covers the requirements for filled, resinous thermosetting compound and sheet prepreg to fabricate shims for use during assembly of aircraft components and parts.
The material shall be classified in the three types as specified:
Type I--A two component material (base and accelerator) which, after mixing and application of heat (350°F), will cure to a hard, strong resin.
Type II--A precatalyzed (B-staged) sheet material which will cure to a hard, strong resin with the application of heat.
Type III--A precatalyzed (B-staged) material supplied frozen in a tube from which it can be extruded and cured to a hard strong resin with the application of heat (200°F).
