Flame-retardant construction adhesive on board
DELO Industrial Adhesives has developed a new two-component adhesive for aircraft interiors. DELO-DUOPOX AB8390 is particularly well suited for bonding of light-weight sandwich panels.
Before adhesives can be used in aircraft interiors, they are subjected to various tests to prove their suitability. The epoxy resin DELO-DUOPOX AB8390 independently fulfils, among others, the requirements regarding fire protection (FST, flammability, smoke density and toxicity) according to CS/FAR part 25 §25.853 (a)(1)(ii)/(d) and ABD0031. This construction adhesive has been developed especially for use in aircraft interiors and features important properties such as good resistance in the temperature range from -55 °C to +85 °C. The adhesive is colorfast in white and will remain so, which has been proved in a storage test during a time period of 1,000 hours at +70 °C and an air humidity of 85%. In contrast to other adhesives which can yellow strongly, DELO-DUOPOX AB8390 offers a robust color result for high-quality applications.
