PPG Aerospace, SMRC Develop Sealant System For Precoating Aviation Fasteners

Abstract:
The technology represents a totally new approach that combines PPG's aerospace sealant expertise with SMRC's nanotechnology and material science core competencies, Sands said. Fasteners can be precoated with PPG's polysulfide, polythioether or non-chromated corrosion-inhibitive sealants.

"Conventional wet installation is a headache for airframers and maintainers," said Gary Schmidt, SMRC's vice president of product development. "With the QwikSeal system, we will simplify their lives and take a lot of the touch labor and waste out of the process for installing and sealing fasteners. Just about any kind of fastener, solid, threaded or blind, can be preprocessed with no changes to the hole, the fastener or the tooling."
