Different from the resin, learn how adhesives allow you to bond to and repair composite structures.
- [Narrator] Adhesives are resins provided…in different forms to facilitate the fabrication…of structural components.…We have three main types of adhesives.…Film adhesives are structural adhesives…for aerospace applications…and are generally supplied…as thin film supported on…a release paper…and stored under refrigerated conditions, minus 18C.…Film materials are frequently supported by fibers…that serve to improve handling of…the films prior to cure.…Control adhesive flow during bonding…and assist in bond line thickness control.…
Fibers can be incorporated…as short fiber mats with random orientation…or as woven cloth, typically nylon or polyesters.…Paste adhesives are used as an alternative…to film adhesives.…These are often used to secondarily bond…repair patches to damaged parts…and also used in place where film adhesive…is difficult to apply.…Paste adhesives for structural bonding…are made mostly from epoxy.…And foaming adhesives expand.…Foaming adhesives need to be stored…in the freezer, just like prepregs…and they only have a limited storage life.…
