Title: New High Performance Paste Adhesive Portfolio for Aerospace Bonding Applications
Authors: J. Jeffrey Sang, Ian P. Aspin
Abstract: To maximize manufacturing productivity and minimize weight while lowering costs, airframers must significantly change their part manufacturing processes. Major cost-saving and increased rate opportunities for part manufacturing may come from out-of-autoclave (OOA) processing, vacuum-bag-only (VBO) processing, use of low temperature curing/rapid assembly materials, and automation of adhesive application. High performance paste adhesives offer potential to achieve the desired processing and mechanical properties for use with these alternate manufacturing processes. To meet our customers’ needs, Solvay Composite Materials has developed a high performance AeroPaste® adhesive portfolio that enables rapid assembly for large parts, thereby reducing inventory and manufacturing costs. AeroPaste® adhesive portfolio includes several high performance one-part and two-part paste adhesives with broad processing windows (flexible cure from room temperature to higher temperature) and film-like performance for structural bonding and rapid assembly applications. This paper presents the development, performance, and application of these new high performance paste adhesive systems for various metal and composite bonding and repair applications.
