Abstract:

Not Available Cements currently used to bond rubber to metal and rubber to rubber contain large amounts of hazardous volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), toluene, and methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK). These adhesives are essential to the bonding of gaskets, door seals, bumpers, heater boots, and other applications during Naval Aircraft maintenance and assembly operations. Environmental laws and regulations require the development of new non-hazardous cements that meet or exceed the performance requirements of MMM-A-121, MMM-A-122, and MMM-A-1617. Texas Research Institute Austin, Inc. proposes the formulation and testing of three new environmentally compliant, high performance cements. Two advanced water based and one high solids cement formulations will be investigated. Screening tests will be carried out to evaluate physical properties, and the best formulation will be optimized. The performance of this formulation will be compared to current specifications. Sample kits of the cement will be prepared, and the formulation will be submitted to NAVAIR for evaluation. This formulation will be modified based on sponsor feedback, and the final formulation will be submitted as a deliverable. TRI/Austin will team with an adhesive manufacturer and packager to set the stage for Phase III commercialization.
